Tigers complete sweep of Indians

CLEVELAND – Max Scherzer pitched six strong innings, Miguel Cabrera homered and drove in three runs, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 10-4 on Sunday for a three-game sweep.

The Tigers, swept in a three-game series at Progressive Field last month, have won four in a row overall.

Scherzer (9-3) bounced back from one of the worst outings of his career. The reigning AL Cy Young winner allowed 10 runs in four innings against Kansas City on Tuesday.

Scherzer gave up one run and six hits, striking out eight. He was struck in the back of the right leg by Lonnie Chisenhall’s line drive in the sixth, but recovered to throw him out and completed the inning.

Cabrera hit his 13th homer in the first, added an RBI single in the third and drove in a run with a grounder in the fifth when Detroit scored seven times.

Josh Tomlin (4-5) took the loss.
