Ubaldo Jimenez has learned it's not easy to sleep the night after throwing a no-hitter.

No other pitcher in the Colorado Rockies' 18-year history has accomplished the feat, so there was no one to prepare Jimenez for what would come after allowing no hits in Saturday night's 4-0 win over the Atlanta Braves.
He says he slept only about two hours and in his groggy state wondered if the no-hitter really happened or ``was like a wonderful dream I was having.''
Finally, about 6:30 Sunday morning, Jimenez took to the streets of Atlanta and ran six miles, a mile or two longer than his normal ritual the day after his games.
The run cleared his mind. Jimenez is still savoring his no-hitter but also says he's ready to look ahead.
Oddsmakers from online sports book BroburySports.com have made the Rockies a 25/1 long shot to win the 2010 World Series and 9/1 to win the NL Pennant. They’re also 2.25/1 to win the NL West and have an over/under of 85 for total regular season wins.
