CLEVELAND -- Ubaldo Jimenez and three relievers combined on a shutout and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 3-0 on Tuesday night.
Jimenez (7-4) dodged constant trouble in six innings, allowing five hits with two walks and four strikeouts.
Cody Allen, Joe Smith and Chris Perez blanked Toronto over the final three innings. Perez allowed two hits in the ninth, but earned his 10th save as the Indians recorded their American League-leading 11th shutout.
The Indians managed only four hits. Nick Swisher and Michael Brantley had RBI singles in the fourth when the Indians put together a walk and three straight singles off starter Josh Johnson (1-4), who gave up two runs in seven innings.
Asdrubal Cabrera added a sacrifice fly in the eighth.
