DETROIT, Mich. (AP) – Ian Kinsler homered and drove in four runs, and the Tigers held on for a 7-5 victory over the Indians on Thursday.

Justin Verlander (2-1) allowed three unearned runs in five innings, and the Tigers trailed 3-1 before Kinsler’s three-run homer in the fifth off Danny Salazar (0-2).

There were four unearned runs in a sloppy game that included five errors, three by the Tigers.

Detroit never gave up the lead after scoring four runs in the fifth, although Cleveland’s Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in the seventh to make it 6-5.

Tribe second baseman Jason Kipnis was ejected after striking out in the third inning. He struck out swinging with the bases loaded for the third out, then appeared to say something to plate umpire Lance Barrett, who immediately threw him out of the game.

Joe Nathan pitched a perfect ninth for his second save in four chances for Detroit.
