Ubaldo Jimenez tossed the first no-hitter in Rockies history yesterday, walking six and working exclusively out of the stretch for the final five innings. The no-no is the first of the season and leaves the Mets, Padres and Rays as the only teams without a no-hitter.
- The Mets beat the Cardinals in 20 long, boring innings. New York scored the first run of the game in the top of the 19th off of utility player Joe Mather. St. Louis evened the score in the bottom of the frame when Francisco Rodriguez blew his first save of the season. Mather stayed in to pitch since the Cardinals had no one left and he gave up one more run, with Mike Pelfrey coming on to get the save in the bottom of the 20th.
- Our friend Bob Mantz is getting more mainstream attention, this time getting a reference in Hondo's New York Post piece.
- ESPN's fancy touch-screen is pretty cool, except when you realize how hard it is to operate, as Todd McShay showed us.
