Cards Extend Rockies' Woes with 10-3 Thrashing
DENVER (AP) -- Colby Rasmus went 4 for 5 and drove in three runs with two triples and the St. Louis Cardinals kept Ubaldo Jimenez winless this season with a 10-3 win over the sinking Colorado Rockies on Friday night.

Rasmus, mired in an 0-for-20 funk coming in, matched his career high with four hits. He singled his first two times up, then broke a 3-3 tie in the sixth with an RBI triple off Jimenez. He added a two-run triple in the seventh off Matt Daley.

Jake Westbrook (5-3) wasn't particularly sharp but still improved to 3-0 all-time against Colorado, giving up three earned runs on five hits over five innings in his first appearance at Coors Field since 2003.

Jimenez, last year's NL All-Star starter, fell to 0-5 and watched his ERA jump to 5.86.
