CHICAGO (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez pitched 8 1-3 strong innings and Asdrubal Cabrera and Lonnie Chisenhall homered to lead Cleveland to an 8-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday night that helped the Indians keep pace in the Al wild-card race.

Cabrera hit a two-run homer and Lonnie Chisenhall added a three-run shot in a five-run fourth inning that powered the Indians to their 11th straight win against Chicago and third in a row overall to improve to 80-68. Texas, at 81-66, holds one wild-card spot and Tampa Bay at 80-66 has the other.

Jimenez (12-9) scattered eight hits and struck out eight to win his third straight start.

Chicago starter Andre Rienzo (2-2) lasted just four innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and four walks.
