Rockies Vs. Marlins Score: Jimenez, Johnson As Good As Advertised

The Colorado Rockies and the Florida Marlins were locked in a 0-0 tie through four-plus innings of ball due to the outstanding performances of Ubaldo Jimenez and Josh Johnson. Neither hitter had allowed a hit yet through 4.5 innings.

That is, until Jimenez ran into trouble in the top of the fifth when he walked the first two batters he faced. On a pickoff throw to second base and no outs, Jimenez threw to the wrong side of second base, out of reach of Troy Tulowitzki, to advance the runners. He then walked the next batter to load the bases. However, he got Josh Johnson to strike out swinging and Chris Coghlan to fly out to left field. And then Omar Infante hit a triple to right center field to clear the loaded bases for the first hit of the game. Hanley Ramirez popped out to end the inning

Josh Johnson has walked two and struck out five so far as the Marlins lead, 3-0.
