Indians Rally Past Verlander

The Indians took two of three from the Detroit Tigers with a 5-3 win on Thursday night. The Tribe offense exploded in the 7th inning with back-to-back home runs by Carlos Santana and Travis Hafner and two RBI singles by Asdrubal Cabrera and Jason Kipnis.

Zach McAllster pitched well, working into the seventh inning giving up three runs, two earned and seven strikeouts. He would get a no decision. Joe Smith would get his 7th win and All-Star Closer Chris Perez would get 29th save of the season.

The Indians will head to the Minneapolis for a series starting on Friday. Josh Tomlin will go up against Scott Diamond for the Twins. First pitch is set for 8:10.
