Ubaldo Jimenez yielded just an unearned run over eight innings in a victory over the Rangers on Monday.
Jimenez gave up four hits, walked one and struck out seven in his first win since May 8 and third overall in 17 starts this season. He's still walked at least one batter every outing this year, and that poor command has prevented him from working deep into games. Still, this makes five starts out of his last seven in which he's allowed just one or two runs.

Jimenez, who had put together four solid outings out of his last five trips to the hill, was shaky, allowing eight hits and two walks while striking out two. He'll take a 4.70 ERA, a 1.56 WHIP, and a 77/53 K/BB ratio into next week's home start against the Rangers.
