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.
