The Detroit Tigers lost to the Cleveland Indians tonight 3-2.

The Tigers found themselves down 3-0 early in the game, and it stayed that way for a while.

Drew Smyly came in for relief and got the last out of the 6th inning.

After a walk to Austin Jackson in the 6th inning, Andy Dirks reached base on a fielder's choice, then Miguel Cabrera hit a 2-run home run to make it a 3-2 game; it's his 34th of the season.

Smyly came back out and got the first 2 outs of the 7th inning, but was pulled after walking 2 batters. Al Alburquerque replaced Smyly and got the last out of the inning in his season debut. Alburquerque came back out and pitched a scoreless 8th inning.

Joaquin Benoit came in and pitched a scoreless 9th inning

The Tigers finish up their series with the Indians tommorrow as Doug Fister (7-8 3.67 ERA) pitches against Ubaldo Jimenez (9-14 5.61 ERA)
