Ubaldo leaves park as precaution

DENVER -- Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez left Coors Field in street clothes before Tuesday night's game against the Red Sox with what the team called an upset stomach. Jimenez had complained of feeling sick and dizzy.

Jimenez, who at 13-1 with a 1.15 ERA is the fourth pitcher since 1920 to win 13 of his first 14 starts, is scheduled to start for the Rockies against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

He is still expected to make his scheduled start. The ace played catch before the game, and after head athletic trainer Keith Dugger talked to manager Jim Tracy, they decided it was best Jimenez go home and rest.
