Tigers’ Simon is 4-0
From the Associated Press:
Victor Martinez drove in three runs, taking advantage after Cleveland pitched around Miguel Cabrera and helping Alfredo Simon and the Detroit Tigers beat the Indians 4-1 Saturday. Cabrera drew four walks in a game for the first time in his career, three of them intentional. Earlier this season, the two-time AL MVP went 11 for 14 with six RBIs in a three-game series at Cleveland. With Cabrera batting third,Martinez was in position to do damage hitting cleanup.
Simon (4-0) gave up one run in 6 2/3 innings. Joakim Soria pitched a perfect ninth for his sixth save. Ian Kinsler drove in the other run for the Tigers and Rajai Davis stole three bases.
The rubber game of the three game series is this afternoon. Kyle Lobstein starts for Detroit. Broadcast time is 12:40pm on 95.3 WBCK.
