Tigers rally to beat Indians 9-8
(DETROIT) – John Hicks expected to be challenged by shutdown reliever Andrew Miller in a tight spot Tuesday night. Instead, he got an easy bases-loaded walk to cap an unexpected comeback. JaCoby Jones homered and doubled, and the Detroit Tigers rallied against Miller during a five-run seventh inning to beat the Cleveland Indians 9-8. The Indians led 4-0 and 8-4 before Detroit's breakthrough seventh for its third straight win. Miller (1-2) allowed two inherited runners to score, then allowed two runs of his own. He faced six batters, giving up two doubles and three walks while getting one out. Louis Coleman (1-0) pitched a scoreless seventh inning, and Shane Greene, pitching for the fourth straight day, worked the ninth for his ninth save. Nicholas Castellanos also homered for Detroit. After Dan Otero gave up a run and left two on for Miller in the seventh, Jones and Pete Kozma hit back-to-back RBI doubles before walks by Victor Martinez and Niko Goodrum loaded the bases with two outs. Miller then walked John Hicks to force in the go-ahead run. The Indians loaded the bases with no one out in the eighth against Daniel Stumpf but Brandon Guyer struck out and Jason Kipnis hit into an inning ending double play. Guyer hit a first-pitch fastball into the Tigers bullpen for his first career grand slam in the first inning off starter Francisco Liriano. Jones' homer came in the bottom of the first. Hicks also had an RBI single in the fifth.
