SAN DIEGO (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez held San Diego hitless into the sixth inning and Miguel Olivo, Carlos Gonzalez and Ryan Spilborghs each hit a two-run homer in the Colorado Rockies' 10-6 win over the Padres on Monday night.
Seth Smith hit a solo homer for the Rockies, who have won five of seven.
Jimenez (14-1), the major league wins leader who threw a no-hitter April 17 at Atlanta, lost his bid for another no-no in the sixth when he allowed four runs on four hits, including Scott Hairston's three-run homer off the facade of the second deck in left field.
The right-hander, who was perfect through three innings, won his eighth straight decision, tying Jeff Francis' team record set in 2007. His ERA rose from 1.60 to 1.83, tying him with Florida's Josh Johnson for best in the big leagues.
