Finally. Rockies and Ubaldo Break The Streak, Smoke The Pirates 9-3

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Ubaldo Jimenez turned in seven strong innings and Clint Barmes drove in three runs as Colorado blitzed Pittsburgh, 9-3, to stop an eight-game losing skid in the finale of a three-game series at Coors Field.

Dexter Fowler contributed three hits, including a two-run double, while Carlos Gonzalez and Brad Hawpe each hit a solo homer for the Rockies, who hadn't won since July 20 at Florida.

Jimenez (16-2) recovered from a horrible outing at Philadelphia on Saturday by scattering four hits and allowing one run, fanning six with three walks.

Neil Walker slugged a two-run shot for the Pirates, whose modest two-game win streak was halted.

Paul Maholm (6-9) was rocked for 11 hits and eight runs with three walks over 5 1/3 innings in the setback, his fifth loss in seven decisions.
