Ubaldo Jimenez pitched eight scoreless innings and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 5-0 on Saturday.

Jason Giambi and Asdrubal Cabrera hit two-run homers in the game that began about 10 hours following the conclusion of Friday night’s contest that ended at 2:53 a.m. on Saturday after nearly five hours of rain delays.

Jimenez (4-3) gave the Indians exactly what they needed. The right-hander allowed four hits and struck out seven in stopping Tampa Bay’s six-game winning streak. The Rays, who rolled to a 9-2 win earlier Saturday morning, had only two runners reach second base.

Giambi, homering in his third straight game, gave the Indians a 2-0 lead in the second. He added an RBI single in third while Cabrera’s two-run blast came in the fifth.
