Greiner, Tigers pounce on Twins bullpen for 10-8 win

  Greiner, Tigers pounce on Twins bullpen for 10-8 win MINNEAPOLIS — Grayson Greiner hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning off left fielder Eddie Rosario's glove and the Detroit Tigers rocked Minnesota’s bullpen for eight runs to beat the Twins 10-8 Sunday. Detroit erased a four-run deficit by raking Minnesota’s relievers in the late innings. The Tigers snapped a streak of five straight losses to the Twins and four losses overall. “You don't want to lose five in a row, particularly the way we lost those four,” said Detroit bench coach Lloyd McClendon, who managed Sunday's game with manager Ron Gardenhire out sick. “We knew it was going to be an uphill battle.

DETROIT — With Carlos Carrasco looking sharp down the stretch, the Cleveland Indians could be a dangerous team in the post-season.

Carrasco allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings, and Jose Ramirez homered twice to lift the Indians to a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. Cleveland took three of four in this series after entering on an eight-game losing streak, and now the Indians are closing in on a playoff berth.

Goldschmidt, Cardinals tighten NL Central race, top Cubs

  Goldschmidt, Cardinals tighten NL Central race, top Cubs CHICAGO — Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer off a struggling Jon Lester, and the St. Louis Cardinals gained ground in the NL Central race by beating the Chicago Cubs 7-3 on Sunday night. St. Louis pulled within 1 1/2 games of Chicago with its third consecutive win over the division leaders. The longtime rivals have one game left in their pandemic-shortened season series on Monday. Dakota Hudson (2-2) worked five innings of three-run ball, shrugging off a shaky start. Chicago dropped to 10-15 since its 13-3 start. Anthony Rizzo and Jason Kipnis homered for the Cubs, but Lester (2-2) lasted just 3 1/3 innings in another lacklustre performance.

“I've been working a lot just getting to this point, but I feel really good right now,” Carrasco said.

This was Carrasco’s first win of September, but he’s been impressive this month, allowing one run or fewer in three of his four starts. Cleveland's starting pitching has been a strength from the start this season, with Shane Bieber and Zach Plesac leading the way with ERAs under 2.00.

The offence, on the other hand, ranks near the bottom of the AL in runs, homers and OPS. Ramirez has done his part, though, hitting 15 home runs this year. He had two multihomer games in this series.

“He's always happy, he's rooting for other players in the dugout,” interim manager Sandy Alomar Jr. said. “He's one of those guys that COVID hasn't even (brought) him down, because he's just motivated all the time.”

Matthew Boyd (2-7) was perfect through four innings for the Tigers, but the Indians scored three runs in the fifth. Then Ramirez added two-run homers in the sixth and seventh to make it 7-0.

Miguel Cabrera hit his 484th career home run for Detroit in the eighth.

Carrasco (3-4) struck out 11 and retired the Tigers in order in five of his seven innings. He allowed a hit and a walk to start the Detroit third but escaped that jam. He walked two in the seventh but also struck out three in what was his final frame.

“Normally he tends to kind of escalate slowly inning by inning, and then decreasing inning by inning if he goes deep," Alomar said. “But this time he was able to sustain it through the entire game.”

Carrasco is now tied with Herb Score on the Indians' career list with 26 games of at least 10 strikeouts. He moved out of a tie with Trevor Bauer.

Carlos Santana singled up the middle leading off the fifth for the first Cleveland baserunner. The Indians took the lead on Jordan Luplow's RBI single, and Delino DeShields added a two-run single that inning.

  Ramirez helps Indians snap skid with 10-3 win over Tigers DETROIT — Shane Bieber and the birthday boy helped the Cleveland Indians end their skid. Bieber took a shutout into the eighth inning, Jose Ramirez homered twice on his 28th birthday and the Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 10-3 on Thursday night. Cleveland snapped an eight-game losing streak. The Indians entered the day holding the final American League playoff spot, and they had a four-game cushion despite their recent slide. “Going into the post-season, it would be nice to get some momentum moving forward," Bieber said.

“Pitches I wanted to throw and just didn’t throw how I wanted to. That’s really the difference,” Boyd said. “That’s what I want back today.”

Willi Castro hit an RBI single in the eighth, and Cabrera followed with a two-run homer. Niko Goodrum doubled home another run in the ninth for Detroit.

EXTRA CHANCE

Ramirez's second homer came immediately after the Tigers failed to turn a double play in the seventh. Goodrum, the second baseman, appeared to take his time while turning it, and then his throw was off target for an error.

“I talked to Niko about that. It certainly looked like it was a nonchalant play, but his explanation was pretty good," said Lloyd McClendon, who took over as Tigers manager after Ron Gardenhire's retirement prior to Saturday's game. "He opened up the front side too quick, tried to be a little bit too quick and caused the ball to sink.”

TRAINER'S ROOM

Tigers: 1B Jeimer Candelario was pulled off the bag by a throw and had to tag Sandy Leon in the third inning. Candelario appeared shaken up after the play but remained in the game.

The Indians return home to face the Chicago White Sox on Monday night. Aaron Civale (3-5) starts for Cleveland against Dane Dunning (2-0).

Detroit is off Monday and plays at Minnesota on Tuesday night. Tarik Skubal (1-3) takes the mound for the Tigers.
