CLEVELAND (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez struck out eight over six innings and Shelley Duncan hit a two-run homer to help the Cleveland Indians beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-3 Saturday.
The Indians got three doubles in the second inning off rookie Matt Moore (5-6) as they jumped to a 3-0 lead.
Jimenez (8-7) allowed a two-run homer to Luke Scott in the fourth, but otherwise was in command. The right-hander gave up five hits and walked only one.
Duncan's homer - his fourth in his past six games - came off reliever Wade Davis and made it 7-2 in the eighth.
Cleveland's fourth win in five games kept the second-place Indians three games behind the Chicago White Sox in the AL Central. The Rays have lost nine of 13.
