Walkoff Balk Helps Indians Sweep Tigers

Walkoff Balk Helps Indians Sweep Tigers

Jason Miller/Getty Images(CLEVELAND) —  A long afternoon game between the Cleveland Indians and the Detroit Tigers ended with a walkoff balk.

Al Alburquerque’s bases-loaded balk in the 13th inning Wednesday gave the Indians an 11-10 victory over the Tigers — a win that took 5 hours, 16 minutes to clinch.

Detroit took a 9-7 lead into the ninth inning, but David Murphy hit a game-tying, two-run home run off of Joe Nathan. 

Alex Avila gave the Tigers a 10-9 lead with a solo home run in the top of the 13th inning, but the Indians scored twice to cap off a three-game sweep of their division rivals.

Mike Aviles led off the bottom of the 13th inning with a single off of Phil Coke (0-1) and moved to second base on a sacrifice by Michael Bourn. Asdrubal Cabrera was then hit by a pitch. Michael Brantley scored Aviles with an RBI single to bring Cleveland within a run.

Alburquerque relieved Coke and intentionally walked pinch-hitter Yan Gomes to load the bases. Ryan Raburn stepped into the batter’s box next and took the first pitch for a ball. As Alburquerque went into his set position, he appeared to move his leg and glove and then stopped. Cabrera scored to end the game.

“It was definitely a balk,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “If they hadn’t have called it we would have went out there and argued.”

Josh Tomlin (3-1) worked the final three innings in relief for the win. He was the ninth pitcher used for the Indians on the afternoon.

Tigers Sweep Defending Champs in Boston

Tigers Sweep Defending Champs in Boston

Jim Rogash/Getty Images(BOSTON, Mass.) — In a rematch of the 2013 American League Championship Series, the outcome was decidedly different. With a 6-2 win on Sunday night, the Detroit Tigers won their sixth straight game and swept the defending champion Boston Red Sox.

The last time these two teams met, Boston completed an improbable Game 6 comeback to eventually move on and win their third World Series title in the last decade. Thanks to an impressive offensive performance, the Tigers got a small stroke of revenge and earned their first sweep at Fenway Park since 1983.

Boston took an early 1-0 lead on a Xander Bogaerts’ RBI single in the second inning. The lead did not last long as Detroit scored three times in the third. Miguel Cabrera knotted the score with an RBI single before Victor Martinez launched his tenth home run of the season, giving the Tigers a 3-1 lead.

Detroit owns the best record in the majors at 27-12 and has now won 11 consecutive games on the road and 15 of their last 18 overall. 

“It really comes down to the starting pitching and the bullpen,” said Tigers manager Brad Ausmus. “The starters have set the tempo and got us deep into the game. We’ve also got some big hits. Miggy and Victor have been hitting well all season long.”

That same blueprint led to success on Sunday night. Anibal Sanchez (1-2), returning from a brief stint on the disabled list, went five innings allowing just two runs on five hits. Meanwhile, Tigers hitters roughed up Jake Peavy (1-2), scoring five runs and totalling 11 hits against the Red Sox (20-23) starter.

Ian Kinsler had four hits while Cabrera and Martinez each drove in a pair of runs.  Tori Hunter added a solo shot in the seventh, increasing the lead to 6-2.
