CHICAGO -- Ubaldo Jimenez took a shutout into the ninth inning and was supported by eight runs as the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 8-1 Saturday night at U.S. Cellular Field. Cleveland is now two games behind in the loss column of Texas and Tampa Bay in the American League Wild Card race. The Rangers have lost five in a row, allowing the Indians to gain ground.

The White Sox scored their only run in the final inning on a sac fly. The run was charged to Jimenez, the first earned ru...

Salazar strikes out nine in 3 2/3 innings as Indians beat White Sox, 3-1

Sometime next season the Indians are going to take Danny Salazar out of the barn and let him run free. Right now the organization's show pony is allowed to merely paw the ground snort and rear back and shake his hooves at the heavens before having a blanket thrown over him and being led back to the barn.
