The Indians, held to two runs over 26 consecutive innings, rallied to beat Colorado 4-1 on Tuesday on a three-run, two-out walk-off homer by Yan Gomes off closer Greg Holland.
Kluber threw his second straight complete game and fourth of the season, but when he walked off the mound in the ninth inning, he was trailing 1-0 and the offense looked incapable of scoring.
Jackson, with two out, battled Holland, who leads the big leagues with 34 saves, through eight pitches before blooping a single into right center field to score pinch-runner Brandon Guyer.
In the eighth, Gomes and Jason Kipnis singled, but Francisco Lindor popped out and Almonte hit into a force play.
In the seventh inning, with Carlos Santana on first and one out, Zimmer sent a weak pop to the mound against lefty Chris Rusin.
