CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – Asdrubal Cabrera scored on Al Alburquerque’s bases-loaded balk in the 13th inning to give the Indians an 11-10 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday.

Alex Avila’s two-out homer in the top of the inning put Detroit ahead, but the Indians scored twice for their second walk-off win in the three-game sweep.

Mike Aviles led off with a single against Phil Coke (0-1) and took second on Michael Bourn’s sacrifice. After Asdrubal Cabrera was hit by a pitch, Michael Brantley lined a single to left that scored Aviles, who slid home before Rajai Davis’ throw.

After a groundout, Alburquerque relieved and pinch-hitter Yan Gomes was walked intentionally to load the bases. Ryan Raburn took the first pitch for a ball. As Alburquerque went into his stretch, he appeared to move his leg and then stopped, and was called for the balk.

Josh Tomlin (3-1), the Indians’ ninth pitcher, worked the final three innings.

David Murphy’s two-run homer for Cleveland in the ninth off Joe Nathan tied it.

Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera and manager Brad Ausmus were ejected in the sixth inning by plate umpire Tim Timmons for arguing balls and strikes.

Cabrera was thrown out after taking a called strike on the first pitch of his at-bat against the Indians on Wednesday. Ausmus charged out of the dugout and had a heated argument with Timmons before being kicked out for the first time in his managerial career.
