Ubaldo and Rox blank Nationals to end road trip

WASHINGTON (AP) - Colorado's Ubaldo Jimenez followed up his no-hitter by tossing 7 1-3 shutout innings, Miguel Olivo and Ian Stewart hit solo homers for the first runs allowed this season by Washington's Livan Hernandez, and the Rockies beat the Nationals 2-0 on Thursday.

Overpowering at times, Jimenez allowed five hits, struck out five, and got 15 of his 22 outs via grounders en route to improving to 4-0 with a 0.95 ERA - meaning he is responsible for half of Colorado's eight victories in 2010. In his previous start, the right-hander threw the first no-hitter in Rockies history, Saturday against Atlanta

Hernandez (2-1) gave up only four hits across eight innings, but he made two mistakes: to Olivo in the second inning and to Stewart in the seventh.
