DENVER (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez extended his scoreless streak to 22 1-3 innings with six shutout innings and the Colorado Rockies routed the Arizona Diamondbacks 12-1 on Tuesday night.
Jimenez's scoreless innings streak is the longest in franchise history by a starter. The previous record was 20 set by Denny Neagle in 2002 and matched by Franklin Morales in 2007. He has not allowed a run in his last three outings, starting with his no-hitter against Atlanta on April 17, the first in club history.
Carlos Gonzalez had three hits and a career-high five RBIs and Troy Tulowitzki also had three hits and scored three runs to pace the Rockies.
