CLEVELAND (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Tigers fall to a Cleveland rally and lose to the Cleveland Indians 5-4 Sunday afternoon.

Detroit’s loss to Cleveland caps a three game series bust against the Indians.

Michael Brantley singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning which began the Indians rally and eventual win over the Tigers.  

The win extends Cleveland’s  home winning streak to 13 games.

Cleveland’s sixth straight win overall increased the Tigers’ losing streak to six. The three-game sweep gave the Indians four series sweeps this season, matching their total for 2010 when they went 69-93.

Brantley followed a tying RBI single by Orlando Cabrera by lining an 0-1 pitch from Joaquin Benoit (0-2) to left, scoring Shelley Duncan from second base.

Matt LaPorta added a sacrifice fly for his third RBI and a 5-3 lead as Cleveland extended its best home start in 70 years. The Indians are 13-2 at home for the first time since 1941 and have baseball’s best record at 19-8.
