First No Hitter in Rockies History

Posted on: April 18, 2010

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!
