BALTIMORE (AP) Corey Kluber struck out nine in seven innings, and the Cleveland Indians beat former teammate Ubaldo Jimenez and the Baltimore Orioles 9-0 Saturday for their fifth win in six games.

Carlos Santana homered and walked three times for the Indians, who took control with a five-run fifth and pulled away by scoring four in the seventh.

Kluber (5-3) became the first pitcher in the majors this season to have five straight outings with at least eight strikeouts. He gave up five hits, walked two and did not allow a runner past second base.

Jimenez (2-6) matched zeroes with Kluber until the fifth inning, when the first-year Oriole was pulled without getting an out. Jimenez tied two undesirable season highs, giving up five runs and walking five, in four-plus innings.
