Jimenez wins 18th as Rockies rally past Reds

DENVER (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez won his club-record 18th game despite a wild performance and the surging Colorado Rockies rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Cincinnati Reds 10-5 Monday.

Even though he leads the National League in victories, Jimenez (18-6), hadn't won since Aug. 4. He snapped a personal four-game losing streak even though he didn't have his usual command of his fastball and struggled through a 123-pitch effort.

He allowed seven hits and matched a season high with six walks, one of them intentional, threw a wild pitch and hit a batter in six innings.

The Reds' lead in the NL Central was cut to six games over St. Louis, which beat Milwaukee 8-6.
