Ubaldo Jimenez doesn't think he owes Troy Tulowitzki an apology and feels he does not deserve to be suspended either. And apparently doesn't think much of his own pitching abilities either. That's basically what he said -- "I can't get the ball to go where I want every time" -- when trying to explain why he should not be suspended for drilling his former Colorado teammate on the elbow during the first inning of a spring-training game Sunday. “I shouldn't be suspended,” Jimenez said Monday.

Tribe tries again There's quite a pennant race shaping up in the American League Central, with the Cleveland Indians again dreaming of their first championship in more than half a century. The Detroit Tigers have taken a half-game lead over the Chicago White Sox, with the third-place Indians three games back. Cleveland last appeared in the World Series in 1997, when the Indians lost in seven games to the Florida Marlins. But the Indians haven't won the title since player-manager Lou Boudreau led them past the old Boston Braves in 1948.

Colorado Rockies Manager Jim Tracy said he was "extremely encouraged" by how Ubaldo Jimenez responded to a Friday long-toss session and said the right-hander, who has a cut cuticle on his right thumb, will throw a bullpen session Sunday as he aims to come off the disabled list. "It was a very, very aggressive form of long toss," Tracy said. "The report I got was that he was really, really letting it go. I was extremely encouraged by that. " Jimenez gave up six runs, five earned, in his opening-day start April 1 against Arizona and has not pitched since.

  The big comeback fell short, dramatics slipping away just as they teased with an appearance. The Dodgers were going very quietly against Alex White, a right-hander they drafted in the 14th round in 2006 but were unable to sign. He went first to the Indians the next year, and then was sent to the Rockies for Ubaldo Jimenez last summer. White entered Sunday's game in Denver an unimpressive 1-3 with a 6.26 earned-run average, and then started blanking the Dodgers through six innings while the Rockies took a 3-0 lead against Nathan Eovaldi.

Standing in the visitors' clubhouse at Angel Stadium, a purple rally monkey draped around his neck, Ubaldo Jimenez doesn't look particularly threatening. When Jimenez stands on the pitcher's mound staring down a batter, it's a whole different story. "I'm sure it's not a comfortable at-bat for anybody who steps in the box against him," Colorado Rockies teammate Todd Helton said. Jimenez, the 26-year-old Rockies ace, said he planned to give the toy to his 6-year-old niece — but he might want to borrow it when he returns to Anaheim for the All-Star game Tuesday.

His last, dreadful game still a fresh memory, Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw called his mom, Marianne, wished her a happy Mother's Day and then prepared to face perhaps the best pitcher in baseball. "You can't give that team any runs with him pitching," the left-handed Kershaw said of the Colorado Rockies and their ace Ubaldo Jimenez, who began the game with a 6-0 record and an 0.87 earned-run averge, not to mention a no-hitter last month. So the 22-year-old Kershaw did just that, pitching a magnificent eight innings in which he gave up two hits and, with Jonathan Broxton working the ninth inning for the save, leading the Dodgers to a 2-0 win and handing Jimenez his first loss.

The Dodgers could not have anticipated in June, when they led the Rockies by 15 1/2 games, that this would be a showdown series in Colorado. They need not fret, however, as they are 10-2 against the Rockies this season, including 5-1 at Coors Field. The Dodgers also are not scheduled to face either of Colorado's top starters, Jason Marquis and Ubaldo Jimenez. Of their final 37 games this season, starting with the Colorado series, the Dodgers play 24 within the National League West. The Dodgers are 33-15 within the NL West, the best record of any major league team against its own division.

Tuesday through Thursday: vs. Colorado Friday through Sunday: vs. Cincinnati The Dodgers did not face Roy Halladay, the National League's strikeout leader, during last week's series in Philadelphia. And they might not face Ubaldo Jimenez, who at 17-3 leads the majors in winning percentage (.850), when the Rockies visit this week. The Dodgers could certainly use the break since they entered Friday 15th among the league's 16 teams in scoring over the last month. And they have been shut out 13 times this season, or once every nine games.

The Giants pulled within two games of the Rockies in the wild-card race and six of the NL West-leading Dodgers, who lost at Cincinnati.

It appears Cleveland Indians pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez is still bitter about his trade from the Colorado Rockies last summer. Playing against his former club for the first time Sunday in an exhibition game, Jimenez drilled Colorado's Troy Tulowitzki in the first inning to reignite a bitter feud between the All-Star pitcher and the club that once labeled him as its top pitching prospect. The incident caused both benches to empty onto the field as Jimenez and Tulowitzki jawed back and forth while being separated by the home plate umpire and teammates.

Nine innings later, Ubaldo Jimenez was still standing in the battle of the winless pitcher versus the surging offense. The way Jimenez was pitching, it didn't seem like a fair fight. The Colorado ace who had pitched like a fifth starter plucked from the scrap heap over the season's first two months considerably cooled off the Dodgers' bats during the Rockies' 3-0 victory Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. Jimenez (1-5) held an offense that had scored 23 runs in its previous three games to four hits and no walks, recording his first shutout in more than a year.

The Colorado Rockies plan to take a cautious approach with the cracked cuticle on Ubaldo Jimenez's pitching hand. Manager Jim Tracy said Tuesday he hasn't ruled the right-hander out of a scheduled start Friday in Pittsburgh, but won't make any definitive decisions until Jimenez tosses a bullpen session Wednesday — his hand willing, of course. In Friday's opener, Jimenez couldn't generate spin on his breaking pitches, giving up six runs — five earned — in six innings against Arizona.

Reporting from Denver Sitting at his desk in the manager's office after the Dodgers' 6-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field, Manager Joe Torre had his uniform top partially unbuttoned, exposing his blue undershirt he was wearing. "In beard we trust," read the shirt, which had Casey Blake's face in the middle. "I told him I was going to wear it today," Torre said, smiling. Blake was the hero of the day as the suddenly streaking Dodgers won their fourth in a row, belting a grand slam in the eighth inning that broke a 1-1 tie. At an-bat that started out with Blake wanting to be aggressive — "I knew he was going to come right at me," he said of Rockies reliever Matt Belisle — turned into an exercise in patience.

The San Diego Padres get the pitching love, and deservedly so, but the St. Louis Cardinals boast the starting rotation with the lowest earned-run average in the major leagues, all the more impressive after injuries to Brad Penny and Kyle Lohse . The All-Stars are Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright , but the unsung hero is rookie left-hander Jaime Garcia , who had a better ERA than Ubaldo Jimenez through Friday. The Cardinals selected Garcia in the 22nd round of the 2005 draft.

Jason Giambi hit a home run for the second consecutive game and Ubaldo Jimenez outpitched Dan Haren to help the Colorado Rockies defeat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 5-1, on Sunday. The Rockies expanded their National League wild-card lead to 4 1/2 games over San Francisco. Colorado remained five games behind the first-place Dodgers in the NL West. Giambi, who had a three-run, pinch-hit home run in the ninth inning of Colorado's 10-4 victory Saturday night, hit a two-run shot against Haren in the eighth inning.
