Nolasco Sets Win Record As Miami Beats Rockies
MIAMI (AP) — Ricky Nolasco gave up three runs in the first inning, then settled down to set a franchise record for career victories when the Miami Marlins rallied past the Colorado Rockies for the second night in a row Tuesday, 7-6.
Nolasco (5-2) broke a tie in the third with a two-run double off Juan Nicasio (2-2) that put the Marlins ahead to stay. On his third try, the right-hander became the Marlins’ sole leader in career wins with a record of 69-53.
He had been tied with Dontrelle Willis for the most victories.
Nolasco gave up four runs in six innings against the Rockies (15-27), who have lost six straight and are off to their worst start since 1995.
The Marlins (24-19) tied the franchise record for victories in May.
