Cubs pitchers one-hit Rockies; same pitchers thank ump for being generous with the Ks

Bad weather? Check.

Six walks? Check.

One hit? Check.

With bad weather in Chicago today, the Colorado Rockies and Chicago Cubs waited through a rain delay to play this game. Ubaldo Jimenez started the game, allowed three runs in 3 2/3 innings and walked six batters. Ted Lilly no-hit the Rockies for 6 2/3 innings, allowing a Garrett Atkins single in the seventh and a walk before leaving the game. He also struck out eight batters. Or the umpire helped him strike out eight batters. Cubs pitchers combined to strike out 12 Rockies, and 6 of them were looking.

Did I leave anything out?

Yes, I did. Clint Hurdle weas ejected from the game, possibly for telling the ump that he couldn't see. And Brad Hawpe left the game with no explanation as of yet.
