Ubaldo Jimenez pitched another gem at Coors Field tonight, going 8 innings and giving up a scant 6 hits and a walk, and with no runs, he lowered his ERA to an amazing 0.88! Raphael Bettancourt gave up 3 runs in the ninth to spoil the shutout. Tornado watches were unnecessary, although there was a bit of rain and hail in the first inning.
The offense looked good as well with two homers from Smith and Gonzalez. Olivo got 3 hits and Hawpe got 2 RBI. Tulo scored three times contributing to the team effort. Hopefully this signals the start of a good run for the Rockies, who were widely predicted to win the division if not the league.
