INTERLEAGUE

Ubaldo Jimenez allowed one run on eight hits to improve to 13-1 on the season in Colorado's 5-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday at Minneapolis.

Jimenez's earned-run average dropped to 1.15 and the 26-year-old Dominican is off to the best start by a pitcher since Roger Clemens went 14-0 in 1986.

"I don't look at stats," Jimenez said with a smile and a shrug. "I probably walk by the TV and see it, but I don't pay attention to it."
