DETROIT — Pinch-hitter Mark Reynolds hit a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 today.
Cleveland tied it in the ninth when Michael Brantley hit a two-out RBI single off Detroit closer Jose Valverde. Joe Smith (1-0) pitched the bottom of the inning, and the Indians took the lead in the 10th.
With men on first and third and one out in the 10th, Michael Bourn hit a slow grounder to shortstop Jhonny Peralta, who threw home in time to get Asdrubal Cabrera trying to score. But Reynolds followed with a single to left off Darin Downs (0-1).
Rich Hill got the first two outs of the Detroit 10th, and Cody Allen finished for his first career save.
The Indians took two of three from the defending AL champions. Cleveland has not lost any of its last seven series.
