|Cards Beat Rocks in 11 Innings
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Ubaldo Jimenez wound up a tough luck 19 game winner, exiting his third attempt at 20 after working eight scoreless innings in the St. Louis Cardinals' 1-0, 11-inning victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.
Pedro Feliz scored the winning run from second when right fielder Ryan Spilborghs bobbled the ball for an error on Matt Holliday's single, giving the Cardinals their fourth straight victory.
The Rockies lost for the 12th time in 13 games. Colorado was one game out of first in the NL West before the skid, and began the day eight games back.
