CLEVELAND, July 28 (UPI) -- Ubaldo Jimenez limited Texas to two hits over eight shutout innings Sunday, staking the Cleveland Indians to a 6-0 win over the Rangers and a series sweep.

Jimenez (8-5) walked three and struck out six, tossing 64-of-110 pitches for strikes.

Michael Bourn supplied a two-run double in the sixth, handing the Tribe a 4-0 lead, and Mike Aviles bashed a two-run homer for Cleveland.

The second-place Indians came into the contest trailing American League Central-leading Detroit by three games.

The Rangers' Alexi Ogando (4-3) was hung with the loss despite allowing just one run on six hits over 4 2/3 innings.
