Recap: Detroit vs. Cleveland

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Mark Reynolds delivered a pinch-hit, two-out RBI single in the top of the 10th inning as the Cleveland Indians rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers Sunday in the finale of a three-game set at Comerica Park.

Facing Darin Downs (0-1) in the 10th, Asdrubal Cabrera poked a leadoff double and advanced to third on Nick Swisher's groundout to the pitcher. Carlos Santana was then intentionally walked and Michael Bourn followed with a slow chopper to short, but the Tigers' Jhonny Peralta fired home to throw out Cabrera for the second out of the frame.

Reynolds, however, made up for the missed opportunity with a single through the left side that plated Santana for the eventual game-winning run.

Rich Hill retired the first two batters he faced in the bottom of the 10th, while Cody Allen struck out Matt Tuiasosopo to secure his first save of the season.

Michael Brantley hit a game-tying RBI single in the ninth off Detroit reliever Jose Valverde, who absorbed the blown save that sent the contest into extras.

Cleveland's Joe Smith (1-0) worked a scoreless bottom of the ninth to earn the win, the Indians' sixth in their last seven tries.

"We left some runners out there early," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "Against a team like Detroit, that's that game where you come in and say 'God we had chances' but there's something to be said about just keep on playing."

Brayan Pena had three hits, including a two-run homer for the Tigers, who have lost four of five. Starter Rick Porcello was charged with two runs on four hits and struck out six over six innings of work.

Bourn pinch-hit to leadoff the ninth with the Tribe down one run. Valverde issued a walk and then allowed the speedster Bourn to swipe second base. Valverde, though, looked to get out alive by retiring the next two batters, but again issued a walk, this time to Jason Giambi, before Brantley smacked a slicing liner into left field to tie the game at 3-3.

"It's one of those days where it's going to happen," Pena added of the blown save. "I mean, Valverde is our closer and we're very happy to have him. He's one of those guys that tomorrow he's going to be back on the mound ready to see what happens."

Cleveland's Zach McAllister, who lasted six frames and allowed three runs -- two earned -- on eight hits and three walks, ran into trouble in the fourth.

Peralta reached second on Lonnie Chisenhall's throwing error to start the inning and Pena followed with an infield single to put runners on first and third. Omar Infante then provided a sacrifice fly to right to give the Tigers a 3-2 lead.

In the fifth, Porcello walked consecutive batters to load the bases, but forced an inning-ending double play to Cabrera to end the threat.

Michael Brantley's single in the third advanced Yan Gomes to third base and the Indians tied the game at 2-2 one batter later with Jason Kipnis' two RBI double to left.

Pena put the Tigers on the board in the second. The lefty crushed McAllister's 2-2 breaking ball over the right-center wall for a two-run blast and a 2-0 Detroit lead.

Game Notes

Johnson headlines FCS players of the week

In 2013, the Montana State Bobcats made a bit of an offensive switch, going from a pass-heavy system to a more run- integrated style of play. The reason wasn't because the team was unstable at quarterback, but rather due to the fact the Bobcats were loaded at the running back position.
