The Rockies were victims of dominant pitching performances on Friday and Saturday, but they got one of their own on Sunday. Left-hander Jorge De La Rosa threw 6 2/3 no-hit innings against the Cardinals before allowing a single to David Freese.
De La Rosa, 32, had thrown 98 pitches before allowing the single, which ate up first baseman Jordan Pacheco. He walked three before the hit, including leadoff man Matt Carpenter twice. De La Rosa came into Saturday's game with a 3-3 record and a 3.52 ERA in 38 1/3 innings spread across seven starts so far this season.
The Rockies have had one no-hitter in franchise history -- Ubaldo Jimenez did the deed against the Braves in April 2010. The Cardinals were last no-hit last June, when Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in Mets history.
