Mostly what you’d expect.
Indians 8, Tigers 2
So the Tigers started Buck Farmer (2 GS, 10.1 IP, 10.45 ERA, 6.20 FIP) against the Indians and Cabrera got the day off as the Tigers faced Carrasco. The results reflected that reality. Farmer did his thing the first time through the order, striking out five and walking two, and then the Indians bats jumped on him as soon as the lineup turned over, getting five hits in a row. He surrendered a homer later and then the bullpen did things, too. Without Cabrera, it was left to the other noted Indians killed, JD Martinez to get the obligatory dinger. They still take the series, and face the Sox on Thursday with Alfredo Simon (13 GS, 79.1 IP, 3.29 ERA, 3.85 FIP) on the hill.
The Moment: JD Martinez dinger.
