Cabrera Crushes Kluber to Take Weekend Series; Tigers 8, Indians 1

The Tigers took a 2-0 lead before rain delayed the game for 1 hour and 51 minutes, and eventually beat the Indians, 8-1, on Sunday.

Miguel Cabrera homered off Cy Young winner Corey Kluber, and JD Martinez greeted Scott Atchison with a three-run shot in the sixth after the delay.

Top prospect Francisco Lindor entered the game in the seventh as a pinch hitter and in the ninth, notched his first big-league hit – memorable for the fall he took rounding first base.

W: Alfredo Simon (7-3)

L: Corey Kluber (3-8)

HR: Miguel Cabrera (14, 4th inning off Kluber 0 on, 1 Out); J.D. Martinez (12, 6th inning off Atchison 2 on, 1 Out); Brandon Moss (11, 9th inning off Soria 0 on, 1 Out)
