Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

36 Comments

Ubaldo Jimenez looked absolutely finished just a handful of weeks ago. But something has clicked.

The Indians right-hander allowed just one earned run on three hits over six innings Saturday in Cleveland’s 7-6 defeat of the Tigers and now boasts a 3-0 record, 1.45 ERA, 0.857 WHIP and 20/6 K/BB ratio over his last 18 2/3 innings (three starts).

Maybe Jimenez has run into a patch of good luck, or maybe he’s rediscovering some of his old form.

Ubaldo posted a 2.88 ERA and struck out 214 batters over 221 2/3 innings in 2010 as the ace of the Rockies.

The 29-year-old will take on the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park next time out.
