OAKLAND, Calif., Aug. 18 (UPI) -- Ubaldo Jimenez yielded one run over 5 2/3 innings and the Indians' bullpen shut down Oakland Saturday in Cleveland's 7-1 victory over the Athletics.

Jimenez (9-7) allowed only one hit and overcame five walks in breaking a personal two-start losing streak. The right-hander struck out eight.

Relievers Rich Hill, Bryan Shaw, Joe Smith and Matt Albers combined to blank the A's the rest of the way as the Tribe bounced back from a 3-2 loss in Friday's three-game series opener.

Nick Swisher belted a solo homer and finished with two RBI. while Jason Kipnis and Asdrubal Cabrera also drove in two runs apiece for Cleveland.

Dan Straily (6-7) was touched for three runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings for the Athletics, who fell 1 1/2 games behind American League West-leading Texas.

Josh Donaldson produced Oakland's only RBI.
