Ubaldo Jimenez only had one bad inning on Monday against Detroit. Unfortunately that one inning was enough to cost Cleveland the game. Former Indian Victor Martinez slammed a three-run homer off Jimenez in the 4th inning for the biggest hit of the game. Detroit beat the Indians 4-2.
Jimenez finished with seven innings, allowing only three runs. Tribe bats couldn't touch Tiger starter Doug Fister. The right-hander struck out 13 batters, allowing only one earned run over eight innings.
The Tigers move to 7.5 games up on the second place Indians.
