Blackmon, Nicasio propel Rockies to pasting of D-backs: By The Numbers
Sydney Cricket Ground, Chase Field, and, as of Friday, add Coors Field to the list.
Randall Delgado couldn't last more than four innings in his first start of the season, allowing six runs on 10 hits.
His counterpart, Colorado Rockies right-hander Juan Nicasio, breezed through his outing, however. Nicasio surrendered one run on four hits in seven innings.
He also had plenty of run support as Charlie Blackmon put together a career day, going 6-for-6 in a 12-2 rout of the D-backs.
Here's a look back at the 10-run drubbing by the numbers:
The D-backs never held a lead Friday, as the Rockies scored in three of the first innings and built an early 6-0 advantage.
With their uninspiring 1-6 record, the 2014 D-backs have tied the mark for the worst start in franchise history.
During the 1998 expansion season, Arizona trudged out to a 1-6 start before defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers on the road by a final of 3-0.
One of the only positives from the one-sided contest came off the bat of left fielder Mark Trumbo in the top of the fifth inning.
Trumbo smashed an 0-2 slider from Nicasio for a two-run shot -- his team-leading third of the season.
In seven games, Trumbo has seven RBI.
Friday marked the fourth time that the D-backs participated in a home opener at Coors Field. With the loss, their record dropped to 2-2 in those openers.
6 Part I:
How historic was Blackmon's day at the dish? The Colorado right fielder became just the second player (Andres Galarraga) in the organization to record six hits in a single game.
Of his six hits, five produced runs (two-run home run, RBI single and a two-run double).
6 Part II:
Arguably the worst part of Arizona's 1-6 start is the fact that all six defeats have come at the hands of other NL West foes. In 2013, the D-backs didn't suffer their sixth loss until their 14th game within the division.
Martin Prado's rough start to the season got even rougher in the bottom of the sixth inning. During a steal attempt of third base, Charlie Blackmon's cleat lacerated Prado's left index finger.
Prado left the game, but his finger laceration did not require stitches.
Arizona's bullpen continues to have its fair share of problems. Joe Thatcher, Oliver Perez and Brad Ziegler combined to give up five earned runs over the last three innings.
This season, D-backs' relievers have allowed 16 runs in the seventh inning or later of games.
After 0-for-3 start at the plate, Paul Goldschmidt extended his MLB-high hitting streak to 26 games with an RBI infield single off of Chad Bettis in the eighth inning.
Aaron Hill continued his assault of Rockies' pitching. Hill recorded two of Arizona's four hits on the afternoon to increase his career average to .370 against Colorado.
