Nicasio lifts Rockies to 5-0 win over Giants
DENVER (AP) - Juan Nicasio scattered three hits over six innings, Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki each drove in two runs and the Colorado Rockies won their first series over San Francisco in two years, beating the Giants 5-0 on Sunday.
Dexter Fowler tied a career high with four hits to help the Rockies take 3 of 4 from the reigning World Series champions. Jordan Pacheco also drove in a run as Colorado captured its first series against San Francisco since May 16-17, 2011, at Coors Field.
Nicasio (4-1) shut down 1 of the top-hitting teams in baseball, striking out five and allowing only an intentional walk before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth. It was the third time in nine starts the righty has thrown at least six innings.
Giants' Pagan leaves game with flu-like symptoms
DENVER (AP) - San Francisco Giants outfielder Angel Pagan left Sunday's game at Colorado in the fifth inning because of flu-like symptoms.
Pagan was replaced in center field by Andres Torres.
Pagan was hitless in his only two at-bats. He has struggled with just 10 hits in his past 52 at-bats.
Moore, Broncos put his big blunder behind them
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos have moved on, even if their fans haven't.
That includes Rahim Moore, the safety whose big blunder led to Denver's heart-wrenching loss in the playoffs four months ago.
The Broncos gather Monday for their first full practice since that fateful, frigid night in Denver when Moore allowed Jacoby Jones' 70-yard touchdown catch from Joe Flacco in the final minute of regulation in the divisional game the Baltimore Ravens won in double overtime on their way to winning the Super Bowl.
Many fans wondered if Moore could ever play in Denver again after his gaffe, akin to Bill Buckner's ball-through-the-legs moment in the 1986 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Mets.
The Broncos, however, are sticking with the third-year pro who remains the starter at free safety.
Denver rallies to beat UNC 12-11 in lax quarters
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Eric Law scored with 13 seconds left to cap Denver's big comeback in a 12-11 win over North Carolina in an NCAA lacrosse quarterfinal Sunday.
Denver trailed by as many as six goals and was down five at halftime.
The Pioneers (14-4) advance to play top-seeded Syracuse in next Saturday's semifinals in Philadelphia. It will be Denver's second trip to the Final Four in the last three years.
Fifth-seeded North Carolina jumped out to a 6-0 lead after less than 10 minutes, but the fourth-seeded Pioneers rallied. After tying the game with 1:31 to play, Denver regained possession and stalled late. Eric Adamson made a difficult shot attempt that was blocked, but Law was there for a rebound goal from the left side.
