DENVER (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez pitched through rain and problems with his command to become baseball's first 12-game winner as the Colorado Rockies beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 on Friday night in an interleague game twice stalled by bad weather before being called after six innings.
Jimenez (12-1) allowed a season-high three runs and five hits in six innings, and his major league-low ERA edged up to 1.16 from 0.93 in a game whose start was delayed 1 hour, 45 minutes because of heavy rain.
When it began raining heavily again, officials delayed the game a second time after the sixth inning. After waiting another 40 minutes, the game was called.
Ricky Romero (5-3) allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings, including a tie-breaking home run by Carlos Gonzalez in the fifth inning.
