Box Score: Indians 4, Rangers 2

Well that was certainly nice to see. Ubaldo Jimenez gave up just two hits in seven innings (five walks, six strikeouts) and the Tribe bats did enough to give Yu Darvish his first major league loss. Jason Kipnis hit his fifth home run of the season and Asdrubal Cabrera had a 2-run double. Chris Perez pitched a scoreless ninth for his league high 11th save.

    Anything close to this out of Ubaldo from here on out could lead to some meaning games in september.

  • Kildawg

    Good outing from Ubaldo, now he just needs to cut down on the walks, stop nibbling so much. If he can continue to improve, these Indians will be legitimate threats to win the division at least.
