Indians Avoid Sweep, Await Tigers

Cleveland (WOIO) - Shin-Soo Choo staked the Indians to an early 2-0 lead with a two-run home run in the third, and Justin Masterson, Vinnie Pestano and Chris Perez did the rest, holding the Orioles to one run, as the Tribe avoided the sweep with a 3-1 win at Progressive Field on Monday night.

Michael Brantley drove in Choo in the 8th for the insurance run.

The Indians now look ahead to Tuesday, and the front-running Detroit Tigers.  The Tribe, currently four back of Detroit going into the series, has taken five out of six from the Tigers this season.
