GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Juan Nicasio held the White Sox hitless for five innings and Jordan Pacheco homered, helping the Colorado Rockies to a 4-1 victory on Tuesday.

Nicasio struck out six of the first eight batters and eight overall. He was removed after 82 pitches and walking just one -- that runner was erased on a double play. The only other Chicago player to reach base was Adam Eaton, who struck out but made it to first on a wild pitch.

White Sox ace Chris Sale, in his final start before opening day on Monday, gave up six hits and struck out three in 3 2-3 innings. Colorado's Drew Stubbs led off the game with a double and scored on DJ LeMahieu's single. After a wild pitch, Michael Cuddyer singled to drive in LeMahieu.

Pacheco homered off Nate Jones, who is competing for the White Sox closer job.
