Troy Tulowitzki Leaves Game After Ubaldo Jimenez Plunks Him

Troy Tulowitzki left Sunday's game against the Cleveland Indians on Sunday afternoon after former Rockies pitchers Ubaldo Jimenez intentionally threw at him during the first inning. By all accounts, Jimenez then went toward home plate and gestured for Tulowitzki to come at him. Marco Scutaro was able to keep Jimenez from going any further while the bases cleared. Tulowitzki left the game with what was described as a ball to the back, but the team announced that he went to the hospital for x-rays on his left elbow.

Jimenez stayed in the game and both sides were issued warnings.
