By Ryan Lewis Published: April 19, 2014

Final: Blue Jays 5, Indians 0 

The Blue Jays and Buehrle silenced the Tribe in a 5-0 victory. Kluber finished the game after 6 2/3 innings and allowed four earned runs on nine hits. 

Buehrle threw seven innings of scoreless baseball. 

Through seven innings: Blue Jays 5, Indians 0 

The Blue Jays delivered a big blow to Kluber, and he's now been relieved in favor of Marc Rzepczynski. 

In the top of the seventh, Kluber recorded two outs and looked to be on his way the eighth. He then walked Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion followed with a double off the left-field wall. Dioner Navarro then drove both runs in with a single to left-center to make it 5-0. 

The Indians bats haven't been able to do anything against Mark Buehrle, recording only four hits. It's been a quiet, cold day for the bats. 

Through two innings: Blue Jays 3, Indians 0 

The Indians' defense hasn't technically committed an error yet today, but it hasn't looked good, either. 

In the first, Melky Cabrera tripled to right field in which David Murphy nearly made the catch but couldn't come up with it at the wall. Cabrera then scored when Jose Bautista hit a blooper just behind first baseman Nick Swisher, who got turned around and couldn't make the catch. 

Two batters later, Swisher couldn't come up with bad hop on a grounder from Dioner Navorro, which allowed Bautista to score after he advanced to second on a passed ball by Yan Gomes and a fielder's choice. 

In the second inning, the Blue Jays extended their lead to 3-0 on a single by Jose Reyes, who scored Brett Lawrie. 

The Tribe, in the first inning, had two runners on base with one out for Carlos Santana, but that scoring threat was killed by a 6-4-3 double play. The Indians again had two runners on in the second inning but Mike Aviles flew out to right field to end the inning.
