Indians 5, Tigers 4 (10)

CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – Michael Brantley homered with two outs in the 10th inning off Al Alburquerque, giving the Indians a 5-4 win over the drowsy Detroit Tigers on Monday night.

Brantley connected on a 3-2 pitch, driving it into the Tigers’ bullpen to end Cleveland’s four-game losing streak and Detroit’s 11-game road winning streak.

Scott Atchison (1-0) pitched a perfect 10th, retiring Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez for the first two outs.

Detroit’s J.D. Martinez hit a pinch-hit homer in the ninth to tie it 4-all, but the Tigers couldn’t muster more magic in extra innings.

The Tigers arrived just three hours before the first pitch because of travel delays from Boston.
