Kluber sharp as Indians beat Orioles 9-0
Updated: Saturday, May 24 2014, 05:14 PM EDT
BALTIMORE -- Corey Kluber struck out nine in seven innings, and the Cleveland Indians beat former teammate Ubaldo Jimenez and the Baltimore Orioles 9-0 Saturday for their fifth win in six games.
Kluber (5-3) became the first pitcher in the majors this season to have five straight outings with at least eight strikeouts. He gave up five hits, walked two and did not allow a runner past second base.
Kluber is 3-0 with a 2.02 ERA and 48 strikeouts in five starts this month.
In this one, the right-hander dominated an offense that had produced 38 runs and 62 hits in its previous five games.
Jimenez (2-6) matched zeroes with Kluber until the fifth inning, when the first-year Oriole was pulled without getting an out. Jimenez tied two undesirable season highs, giving up five runs and walking five, in four-plus innings.
The right-hander spent 2 1/2 seasons with Cleveland before signing a $50 million, four-year contract with Baltimore in February.
Jimenez struck out three and walked three in the first two innings, keeping the Indians hitless but using 52 pitches to do so. He faced the minimum six batters over the next two innings, allowing an infield single to Michael Bourn before getting Michael Brantley to hit into a double play.
Then came the fifth inning, when seven batters reached before Baltimore got an out.
A walk, two singles and a throwing error by second baseman Jonathan Schoop produced the game's first run, and a single by Mike Aviles made it 2-0 and chased Jimenez. T.J. McFarland entered with the bases loaded and hit Brantley with a pitch to force in a run, and Lonnie Chisenhall followed with an RBI single. The final run of the inning scored on a double-play grounder.
In the seventh, Brantley singled and Chisenhall doubled before Ryan Raburn hit a two-run double. One out later, Santana hit reliever Brad Brach's first pitch over the right-field wall.
