CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – Danny Salazar pitched his first career shutout, scattering eight hits, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 7-0 on Wednesday night.

Salazar (6-6), who has pitched 17 consecutive scoreless innings, was given a loud ovation by the sparse crowd of 11,739 when he took the mound for the ninth. The fans were on their feet throughout the inning and roared when Nick Castellanos struck out to end the game.

Salazar pumped his fist after Castellanos swung and missed at his 118th pitch.

Carlos Santana hit a two-run homer in the first off Justin Verlander (12-12), who allowed seventh runs in 6 2/3 innings.

Cleveland scored twice in the fourth on Lonnie Chisenhall’s RBI double and Yan Gomes’ run-scoring single. Michael Bourn’s RBI single and rookie Jose Ramirez’s run-scoring double finished Verlander in the seventh.

    REVIEW: ‘It Follows’ is the best American horror film in a decade

    In this image released by Brigade Marketing, actress Maika Monroe appears in a scene of It Follows, directed by David Robert Mitchell. “It Follows,” has been arguably the buzziest American film at Cannes next to Bennett Miller’s wrestling drama “Foxcatcher,” which boasts a far more famous cast and a major premiere at the Palais des Festival.

    "It Follows" is a horror movie worthy of classic comparisons.
