Price, Cabrera lead Tigers to rout of Indians

CLEVELAND — David Price bounced back from an alarming start and Miguel Cabrera homered twice, hitting one of Detroit's three homers off Cleveland's Corey Kluber, as the Tigers rolled to a 12-1 win on Monday to slow the Indians' climb in the standings.

Price (13-10) gave up one run and eight hits in seven innings. The left-hander was coming off a troubling loss to New York in which he allowed nine consecutive hits in one inning and eight runs over two. Price called it "probably the worst game I've ever had in my life."

But he was more like himself against the sleepy Indians, who had won six of seven to get within 3½ games of first in the AL Central.

Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the first inning off Kluber (13-9) and Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez connected for consecutive shots in the third. Cabrera homered again in the eighth off rookie Bryan Price.
