Indians Blank Tigers

Trevor Bauer struck out 10 in eight sparkling innings, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Tigers 6-0 on Wednesday, avoiding a three-game sweep in Detroit.

Bauer retired his first 12 hitters, and Michael Brantley hit his sixth home run of the season.

Ryan Carpenter allowed five earned runs and seven hits in five innings for Detroit in his second big league start.

The scuffling Indians lead the AL Central despite a .500 record.
