Jimenez strikes out 10 as Rockies top Pads

BY foxsports • July 18, 2009

Whatever flicker of hope the San Diego Padres had after scoring two runs in the fifth inning was quickly doused by Colorado right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez.

Jimenez bounced back from his only shaky inning to finish with 10 strikeouts, leading the Rockies to a 5-3 win over the Padres on Friday night.

Jimenez was perfect in the sixth and seventh, and allowed only three hits in seven innings to win for the first time in a month.
