Jimenez lasted 8 1/3, gave up eight hits, one run and one walk while striking out eight. His ERA has been under 2.00 since the All-Star break.
The Cleveland broke the game open with a five-run burst in the fourth inning. Asdrubal Cabrera and Lonnie Chisenhall hit 400-foot bombs over the right-field fence.
Cabrera’s 13th homer of the year scored Carlos Santana, while Chisenhall’s 10th home run drove in Jason Giambi and Yan Gomes.
The Tribe scored its other three runs on a two-run single by Santana in the sixth and a sacrifice fly by Ryan Raburn in the ninth.
The Indians are five games behind the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers, who lost 1-0 to Kansas City.
In the wild-card chase, the Indians’ surge has put them within striking distance of both wild-card leaders. Cleveland is one game behind Tampa Bay and 1.5 behind Texas.
Cleveland has beaten Chicago 11 times in a row and will go for a four-game sweep today at 2:10 p.m. Zach McAllister (7-9) will pitch for the Tribe against White Sox ace Chris Sale (11-12).
