Indians Vs. Rangers Score Update: Ubaldo Jimenez Strong, Cleveland Leads 4-0 After Six Innings

Manny Acta's bold decision to put forth an all-lefty lineup on Sunday appears to have paid off, as the Cleveland Indians lead Texas 4-0 after six innings behind a strong performance from starter Ubaldo Jimenez.

Cleveland hitters have routinely forced Texas pitcher Yu Darvish to work deep into counts, despite a whopping 11 strikeouts by the Japanese import after just six frames. Darvish issued four free passes and yielded six hits, but needed an inordinately-high 112 pitches to make it out of the sixth.

For the Indians, Jimenez has been the headliner he's often billed as, and has given up just two hits all game to a potent Texas lineup. Jimenez currently sports a less-than-ideal 4:4 strikeout-to-walk ratio, but remains in line to get the win and move to 3-2 on the year.

Offensively, Asdrubal Cabrera continued his hot streak from the the plate with a two-run double in the third, while Jason Kipnis added a solo shot in the 5th to give the Indians a 4-0 advantage.
