CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – J.D. Martinez hit a three-run homer off closer Cody Allen in the ninth inning, helping the Detroit Tigers rally for a 4-2 win over the Indians on Tuesday night.

Martinez’s one-out shot over the center-field wall bailed out the Tigers, who had been unable to get a clutch hit for eight innings. But in the ninth, Torii Hunter drew a leadoff walk from Allen (5-4), Miguel Cabrera singled, and after Victor Martinez flied out, J.D. Martinez connected for his 19th homer, a crushing blow to the Indians.

Phil Coke (3-2) pitched 1 1-3 innings and Joe Nathan worked the ninth for his 29th save.

Detroit’s comeback kept the Tigers on the heels of first-place Kansas City in the AL Central and halted the Indians’ recent surge.
