Ubaldo wins home debut with Indians

CLEVELAND (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez showed why Cleveland traded for him, winning his home debut and rookie Jason Kipnis went 5-for-5
with four runs and three RBIs as the Indians shaved another game
off Detroit's lead in the AL Central by beating the Tigers 10-3 on
Wednesday night.

With its 13th straight win at Progressive Field over Detroit, Cleveland closed within two games of first place - and the Indians will have a chance to sweep the Tigers for the second time this year. That is, if they can beat Justin Verlander on Thursday.

Jimenez (1-0), acquired in a blockbuster deal from Colorado at the trading deadline, allowed three runs and six hits in eight power-packed innings. He struck out six and walked one.
