Tigers swept once again, this time by Indians, 5-4

Post  Admin on Sun May 01, 2011 5:53 pm

Michael Brantley singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Cleveland Indians rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers.

Alex Avila’s bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the top of the eighth gave Detroit a 3-2 lead.

Phil Coke gave up two runs and four hits over six innings in his fifth start after opening the season in the bullpen. The lefty walked two and struck out four. Lefty hitters in Cleveland’s lineup went 1 for 8. Coke has held lefties to a .162 average (6 of 37) this season.

The Tigers return home to Comerica Park this week to face the New York Yankees in a 4-game series.
