Indians Vs. Rays Final Score: Cleveland Splits Series After 6-0 Shutout In Game Four

The Cleveland Indians were unable to wrap up a series victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday, and instead finished the four-game set with a split after dropping Game 4 by a score of 6-0. They had previously won Game 1 on Monday by a score of 3-2 and then blew things up in Game 3 with a 10-6 win. Game 2 was a 4-2 win for Tampa Bay.

Once again, Ubaldo Jimenez found himself unable to last more than a couple innings, giving up a homerun to Luke Scott in the third inning and then getting shelled in the sixth inning. He was pulled in the sixth after giving up a single to Carlos Pena that scored B.J. Upton. Upton had reached base after scoring Desmond Jennings, Jose Molina and Sean Rodriguez with a double to left field.

Scott Barnes would come in and allow a run as well, but the damage was done anyway and Jimenez was handed his ninth loss of the season. David Price picked up the win for the Rays, pitching seven full innings with two hits and three walks against seven strikeouts. He improved to 13-4 on the season for his efforts.

Cleveland will try to get back in the swing of things as they return home and face the Baltimore Orioles in another four-game series, before playing host to the rival Detroit Tigers. Game one of the Orioles series is set for Friday.
