The Indians didn't have the lead in Detroit until when it counted. 4-3 was the final as the Tribe came back to force extra innings with the Tigers, thanks to a ninth inning game tying Michael Brantley single to left field scoring pinch hitter Michael Bourn. In the 10th inning Mark Reynolds pinch hit line drive single into left scored Carlos Santana to give the Indians the lead.
The Indians took two out of three games from the American League Central leading Tigers and are now tied for first place after winning 12 of their last 14 games.
Monday the Tribe returns home to play a makeup double header against the New York Yankees. Justin Masterson will take the mound for the Tribe, while David Phelps gets the nod for the Yankees. Game one is set for a 12:05 start time, and one ticket will get fans into both games.
