SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Ubaldo Jimenez showed no ill effects from an infected thumb that pushed back his start a few days, pitching three scoreless innings Monday in the Colorado Rockies’ 7-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Jimenez gave up a hit and walked one in his first appearance since Feb. 26.
Dodgers starter Ted Lilly, who had his first start delayed because of the flu, was happy with his 3 1-3 innings in which he allowed a run on three hits. He struck out two and did not walk a batter.
Tim Redding pitched three scoreless innings to get the win. Jerry Sands’ three-run shot off Greg Reynolds highlighted a four-run seventh for the Dodgers.
