Righty starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez threw the first no hitter in team history on Saturday at Turner Field against the Atlanta Braves. Jimenez was conveniently wild as he walked 6 batters while whiffing 7 in this game. He threw 129 pitches against the Braves with 72 of them being strikes. Jimenez improved to 3-0 on the season with a 1.29 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. He just has nasty stuff. Carlos Gonzalez was the offensive star for the Rockies in this game as he was 2 for 5 with 2 doubles, 1 run scored and 2 RBIs. Brad Hawpe also had a nice game at the plate as he was 3 for 4 with 1 run scored.

    What a feat, this was the first time in history. He now has an autograph signing in a couple weeks for a “No-Hitter” inscribed baseball.

    That will be cool Mike. I have always liked Jimenez and I think he could challenge for a Cy Young Award someday if he tightens up his control a bit. He’s such a fun pitcher to watch.
