Tigers can't shut down Kluber, Indians win 5-2

Tigers swept by AL Central-leading Cleveland

The process is likely to be painful.

The Indians went on to win the game 11-1, dropping the Tigers to 58-78 on the season. The gap between the top and bottom of the division is vast and this was not a fair fight. In the nightcap, Josh Reddick tied it at 1 with an RBI single off Seth Lugo (5-4) with no outs in the sixth before Jose Altuve avoided Kevin Plawecki's tag at home to score on a single by Marwin Gonzalez. The Indians have won seven straight capped off by a 9-4 win at the New York Yankees where everything fell in to place.

Twins 17, Royals 0: Joe Mauer went 4-for-4 for Minnesota, and Eduardo Escobar hit two home runs while driving in six runs.

Diamondbacks 6, Rockies 2: Patrick Corbin pitched effectively into the sixth inning, and J.D. Martinez hit a three-run home run for Arizona.

Are the Cleveland Indians going to move their winning streak to 11 games at the host Detroit Tigers Sunday afternoon?

He is the third player in Indians history (and 13th in major-league history) to produce five extra base hits in one game - the last was Kelly Shoppach in 2008.

The Tigers, who just traded Justin Upton and Justin Verlander, were also missing Miguel Cabrera, Alex Wilson and manager Brad Ausmus. The ball hit the yellow padding on top of the left-field fence, popped straight in the air and bounced off the padding and back into play.


That is, until Tigers outfielder Mikie Mahtook reached up with his bare hand and slapped the ball over the wall, like the game was goddamn volleyball. He ended up batting it over the fence.

Before the day was out, Ramirez would add three doubles and another home run (this one bounced out of right fielder Alex Presley's glove on its way out of the park), but none were stranger than the first inning homer to left.

"He said he feels confident", Ramirez said through Indians first base coach Sandy Alomar Jr. He lasted four innings, giving up five runs and eight hits.

Perez had an RBI single in the second with one out and Cleveland got a second run that inning on a bases-loaded forceout. He gave up a run in every inning but the third, and he didn't record an out in the fifth inning before being pulled.

But there's always room for things to get even worse. The ball landed just under the Pepsi sign in right field.

RANGERS 7, ANGELS 6: Elvis Andrus hit two of the four Texas home runs and the Rangers held on to win in Arlington, Texas.
