PHOTO GALLERY: Cleveland Indians beat Detroit Tigers behind Francisco Lindor, Josh Tomlin and others
Francisco Lindor had three hits, including a game-changing three-run homer, in the Indians 7-3 win over the Tigers on Tuesday at Progressive Field. On the heels of the Tribe’s sweep of Detroit in Michigan April 22-24, the Indians are now 4-0 against their AL Central rival this season.
Lindor singled and scored in the first, doubled and scored in the third and smashed a three-run homer in the fifth to stake the Tribe to a 7-2 lead. He also made another fantastic defensive play to rob Detroit’s Justin Upton of a hit in the second.
Mike Napoli had a two-run double, and Yan Gomes and Michael Brantley added RBI singles. Josh Tomlin scattered nine hits over six innings to improve to 4-0 on the season.
