Indians Vs. Angels Preview: Ubaldo Jimenez Looks To Make It Two In A Row

The Cleveland Indians snapped their 10-game road losing streak with a 6-2 win against the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night. Justin Masterson took a shutout into the seventh inning, and finished with a final stat line of 6 IP, 6 H, 3 BB, and 4 K.

Now they'll look to make it two in a row as Ubaldo Jimenez takes the mound. Jimenez is coming off one of his best starts this season. He struck out a season-high 10 against the Red Sox on Thursday, allowing three runs on six innings of work.

The Indians, whose playoff hopes are all but extinct, are hoping to push the sliding Angels further out of the wild-card race.

On the other side, the Angels will look to avoid losing their fourth in a row, as they send Zack Greinke to the hill. Greinke is still searching for his first win as an Angel. He's especially struggled in his last two outings, allowing a combined 10 earned runs.
