Ubaldo Jimenez pitches 5 solid innings for Indians in a 5-2 win over White Sox

Ubaldo Jimenez pitched five solid innings, settling into a good groove after allowing two runs in the second, and Cord Phelps hit his second homer of spring training to lift the Cleveland Indians to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.

After stringing together four hits in the second, including an RBI ground-rule double to center by Gordon Beckham and a run-scoring single by Dewayne Wise, the White Sox were held to two hits in the final six innings against Jimenez and four Indians relievers.

Lonnie Chisenhall and Asdrubal Cabrera each doubled for the Indians, giving Cleveland a major league-leading 46 doubles this spring.

Alexei Ramirez (.409) singled twice and stole a base, and Wise had two singles for the White Sox.
