Jimenez throws first no-hitter in Rockies history

Colorado Rockies pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez on Saturday threw the first no-hitter in the franchise's 18-year history, a 4-0 victory over the Braves in Atlanta, according to MLB.com.

Jimenez also singled in a run and scored a run in the Rockies' three-run fourth inning, according the Web site of Major League Baseball.

He struck out seven batters and walked six. Jimenez threw 128 pitches, 72 for strikes, and his fastball was clocked at 100 mph early in the game. He was still throwing in the upper 90s late in the game, according to MLB.com.

    Great game for the Rockies/pitcher. McMclouth left his hitting with the Pirates, Melky the Yankees.Glaus in spring training. Diaz sits on the bench and can hit. Wouldn't pay laroche who can play first and sometimes hits. I think you get my drift.

    Being a Rockies' fan, I am partial to Ubaldo Jimenez, I knew that he had been pitching well recently, so when I heard about the no-hitter it came as no surprise to me.
