Ubaldo Jimenez put on quite an encore performance Thursday, following his no-hitter by shutting out the Nationals for 7.1 innings. Jimenez allowed five hits and two walks while improving to 4-0 with a 0.95 ERA, although Jim Tracy letting him throw 121 pitches after needing 127 pitches for the no-hitter is worrisome.
He also threw 115 pitches in the start preceding the no-hitter, so Jimenez’s workload is piling up as he dominates. He topped 100 pitches in 29 of 33 starts last season, including 115 or more in 10 outings, but went beyond 120 pitches just twice and until now had never had back-to-back 120-pitch starts in his career.
