_______Rockies 12-19 vs Cardinals 19-12_______


_______Ubaldo Jimenez 1-2 5.90era vs Joel Pineiro 2-2 3.75era_______




Rockies: Jimenesz's spot in the rotation was in jeopardy before he turned in an encouraging 5 1/3 innings during which he gave up three hits, including a home run, and finished with a no-decision in the Rockies' 3-2 loss to the Giants on Wednesday. By being able to repeat his delivery, Jimenez had his liveliest fastball of the year and was able to change speeds and throw his breaking ball.




Cardinals: Pineiro showed that he knows how to pitch with a big lead. After a rocky beginning to his last game, he came out firing once he got a seven-run lead. It led to a lot of hard contact, but only one walk over the final five innings. Control has been Pineiro's key since he's come to St. Louis. He's thrown strikes consistently, and it's worked out.
