First No Hitter in Rockies History
Posted April 18, 2010on:
Friday night was an exciting night for baseball fans! Ubaldo Jimenez was not very known to non baseball fans compared to highly represented players such as Derek Jeter and A-Rob, but this young man threw a no hitter last night for the first time in the Rockies organization history! The Atlanta Braves have never faced Jimenez before Friday, therefore they did not know his tendencies from a hitters standpoint. The young pitcher was throwing over 96 and touched 100mph, the fastball clearly through off the Braves. Through seven innings he had 8 walks which is quite a bit, considering he through a no hitter. He said ” in the 8th inning, i was very nervous and I just battled through it”. This no hitter was very rare because the season has just begun. His no hitter was a battle for the most exciting game on Friday, another game might just trump all!
