Ubaldo Jimenez Throws First No-Hitter In Colorado Rockies History

On April 17, 2010, Colorado Rockies' right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez pitches the first no-hitter in the 18-year history of the Colorado franchise.

Former Colorado Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez, still the only Rockies pitcher to throw a no-hitter.
The 4-0 historic victory over Atlanta at Turner Field was saved in the seventh inning with a spectacular catch by center fielder Dexter Fowler.

Jimenez would walk six batters in the game but also strike out seven, throwing a career-high 128 pitches, 72 for strikes.

Jimenez would go on to win the National League Pitcher of the Month for April, becoming the second pitcher in Rockies history to win a Pitcher of the Month award.

Jimenez became only the second pitcher in MLB history to throw a no-hitter and notch five wins in the month of April.
