May 06, 2012 -- 4:13pm

Ubaldo Jimenez threw seven shutout innings, giving up just two hits, and the Cleveland Indians held on for a 4-2 victory over the Texas Rangers in the finale of a three-game series Sunday.

Cleveland handed Texas rookie Yu Darvish his first major league loss.

The  Indians won two of three in the set after Jimenez (3-2) struck out six in his outing, helping them take a 4-0 lead despite issuing five walks.
 
Jason  Kipnis  hit a solo  homer and Asdrubal Cabrera  knocked in two runs for Cleveland, which has won four of its last five overall.
 
Darvish  (4-1) struck  out 11 but gave up  four runs -- three earned -- on six hits  and four walks in six innings. The 25-year-old Japanese right-hander had been unbeaten with a 2.18 ERA in his first five MLB starts.
