Tigers avoid sweep with 5-1 win over the Indians Sunday, open series at Arizona tonight

DETEOIT, MI (WTVB) - The first place Detroit Tigers yesterday avoided a 4-game sweep by the Indians as they beat Cleveland 5-1 at Comerica Park. The victory ended Detroit’s 4-game losing streak that dated back to the last game before the All-Star break and also padded the Tigers’ American League Central lead over the second place Indians to 5-and-a-half games.

Drew Smyly had a strong start for Detroit, pitching scoreless ball until the seventh when Yan Gomes homered with two outs. Smyly allowed just 4 hits and matched a career-high with seven innings on the mound while improving to 6-8. Joba Chamberlain worked around 2 walks in the eighth and Joe Nathan tossed a perfect ninth to bounce back from Saturday night’s loss. Torii Hunter’s 2-run homer in the fourth put Detroit up 4-0.

The Tigers have headed to Arizona to begin their final Western road trip on their schedule, opening a 3-game series tonight against the Diamondbacks before playing 4 games at Anaheim against the Angels.

The Chicago White Sox lost 11-7 to the Astros in Chicago while the Cubs fell 3-2 at Arizona, giving the D-Backs a 3-game sweep. Former Homer high school standout Josh Collmenter was sharp for 7 innings for Arizona and moved his mark to 8-5.
