Ubaldo wins 15th as Rox sweep the Redbirds

DENVER (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez became the first pitcher to reach 15 wins before the All-Star break in 10 years, allowing three hits over eight innings, and the Colorado Rockies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 Thursday.

Jason Giambi went 4 for 4 with two RBIs and Dexter Fowler had two hits for the Rockies, who swept the three-game series.

Huston Street worked the ninth for his third save.

Jon Jay doubled twice for the Cardinals.

After struggling in his past three starts, Jimenez (15-1) was dominant. He had one bad inning in each of those starts but he avoided that Thursday in becoming the first pitcher to have 15 wins at the All-Star break since Toronto's David Wells did it in 2000.

Jimenez allowed one run. He struck out six and walked one.
