The Indians beat the Tigers for the fifth straight time this season, 4-0 Wednesday night in Cleveland.  Anibal Sanchez didn't allow a hit through three innings but gave up four runs on three hits, a walk, a hit batter and a wild pitch in the fourth. The Tigers had their chances but when it was all said and done, Corey Kluber pitched a five-hit shutout.

Kluber worked out of jams in the second and fourth to beat Detroit for the second time in two weeks.  The right-hander, who won the AL Cy Young Award in 2014, struck out seven and walked two in his second career shutout and eighth complete game. Rookie Michael Fulmer makes his second career start for Detroit tonight.  Broadcast time is 5:45 on WBCK.
