Tribe Sweeps Detroit for Third Time This Season; Extends Streak to 9 with 9-3 Win
The Cleveland Indians domination of Detroit continued on Sunday afternoon, as the Tribe swept the Tigers for the third time this season, winning 9-3.
The Tribe is now 9-0 against Detroit, with six of those games coming on the road.
Four Indians homered in the fifth inning off Justin Verlander, removing all doubt of who would come out on top.
Josh Tomlin worked eight innings, allowing three earned runs on six hits. He struck out three and walked one, maintaining his league-leading strikeout-to-walk ratio.
Tomlin improves to 9-1 on the season, the Indians improve to 44-30 on the season, and hold a 5.5 game lead on the Kansas City Royals for first place in the Central Division.
The Tribe heads to Atlanta for a three-game series against the Braves, followed by a four-game weekend series in Toronto to wrap up their ten-game road trip.
Trevor Bauer takes the hill for the Tribe against John Gant. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM Monday.
