The Cleveland Indians rallied from a 10-5 deficit to beat the Colorado Rockies 12-10 in Cactus League play on Sunday, but the big story from the game was Ubaldo Jimenez, who hit Troy Tulowitzki with a pitch in the first inning. The HBP from Jimenez -- a former Colorado Rockies starter -- caused both benches to clear.
Colorado manager Jim Tracy was extremely displeased about it.
Rockies manager Jim Tracy called Jimenez's hitting Tulowitzki and following it up by stepping toward him "the most gutless act I've seen in 35 years in baseball," and he called for Major League Baseball to take action.
"He intentionally threw at him," Tracy said. "He should be suspended. I'm gong to be very disappointed if he doesn't."
Tulowitzki was not injured.
Tyler Colvin had a huge day at the plate for the Rockies, going 4-5 with six RBI. Travis Hafner was nearly as good for Cleveland in a 3-5, five RBI performance.
