Tigers 12, Indians 1
The Indians had a late night and were greeted by a powerful Tigers lineup that made it easy on David Price (29 GS, 210.1 IP, 3.25 ERA, 2.88 FIP, 5.0 fWAR) who gave up an early run and settled in for seven solid innings. The bats were the story, however, as the Tigers chased Corey Kluber with five early runs that came on three big home runs from the middle of the order. But the Tigers weren’t done, adding seven additional runs in the late innings thanks to another Cabrera bomb, some hit parading, and then an assault from the Tigers recent minor league callups, Perez, Moya, and Collins. The big win gets the series off on the right foot and sets them up for Tuesday behind Kyle Lobstein (1 GS, 11.2 IP, 3.09 ERA, 3.90 FIP, 0.1 fWAR).
The Moment: Perez, Moya, and Collins put on a show as the Seawol…Tigers run away on the Tribe.
