Tigers 8, Indians 1
With the threat of rain hanging over the metro area, the Tigers played the Indians in two acts on Sunday, winning both bouts. They led 2-0 entering the delay thanks to a massive home run by Cabrera, and they scored six runs on the back nine, thanks in part to a big home run from JD Martinez. Alfredo Simon (12 GS, 76.2 IP, 2.58 ERA, 3.47 FIP) gave them five solid innings before the delay and the bullpen held the line after despite a late scare, giving the Tigers another series win against the Indians, setting up a four game set with the other Ohio team. Anibal Sanchez (13 GS, 82 IP, 5.16 ERA, 4.26 FIP) gets it going on Monday.
The Moment: Cabrera hits another mammoth, 454 foot home run.
