Ubaldo Jimenez threw six effective innings, Luis Valbuena homered and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 7-3 on Sunday.
Valbuena also singled twice and scored two runs as the Indians collected 14 hits. Trevor Crowe had three singles, and Jason Donald and Lonnie Chisenhall added two hits apiece.
Jimenez (3-2) issued five walks, but allowed just two runs and three hits. The right-hander, who was acquired from Colorado at the July 31 trade deadline, struck out two.
White Sox starter Zach Stewart (2-4) yielded three runs and seven hits over five innings in his first outing since he tossed a one-hitter at Minnesota last Monday.
Before the game, the Indians activated Travis Hafner from the Disabled List. Hafner, who had been out since August 21 with a strained right foot, was in the starting lineup and batted fourth. Hafner is hitting .281 with 11 homers and 49 RBIs in 82 games this season.
Hafner went 1-for-4 in the game with a walk.
The Indians are in third place in the AL Central, 11 games behind the division-leading Detroit Tigers.
