OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez carried a no-hit bid into the sixth, Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn homered, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Oakland Athletics 7-1 on Saturday night.
Jimenez (9-7) didn't allow a hit until Josh Donaldson lined a run-scoring single to shallow center with two out in the sixth, ending the pitcher's night after 105 pitches. He struck out eight and walked five.
Asdrubal Cabrera drove in two runs and Michael Brantley hit a pair of doubles for Cleveland.
A day after the Indians matched a season high with 13 stranded base runners, they took advantage of timely opportunities.
Swisher drove the first pitch from Dan Straily over the right-field fence for his 13th home run, staking Jimenez to an early lead in the first. Cabrera later added a run-scoring single before hitting an RBI double in the sixth.
