Like a dream, Rockies pitcher can’t sleep after no-hitter

On Saturday a revved-up Ubaldo Jimenez made baseball history, on Sunday he was too tired to remember it ever happened.

He slept only about two hours the night he threw the first no-hitter in Colorado Rockies history, during a 3-0 win over the Atlanta Braves.

Jimenez was so groggy the next morning he wasn’t sure if the no-hitter ever happened. He told the associated press, “It was like a wonderful dream I was having.”

After he couldn’t sleep, Jimenez said he got up and ran six miles at about 6:30 in the morning.

He promises he’ll be rested up for his next scheduled start on Thursday.
