CLEVELAND (AP) – Eugenio Suarez’s two-run single and Victor Martinez’s three-run homer highlighted a seven-run 11th inning that lifted the Detroit Tigers to an 11-4 win over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night.

Detroit scored four runs in the first and then was shut down for the next nine innings. The Tigers sent 10 men to the plate in the first and 11 batted in the final inning.

Cleveland chipped away against defending Cy Young winner Max Scherzer and tied the score against the Tigers bullpen in the seventh.

Phil Coke (4-2) pitched 1 2-3 innings.

Josh Tomlin (6-9) gave up five runs and three hits in one-third of an inning.

Detroit won three of four in the crucial series, pulling one game behind Kansas City in the AL Central. Cleveland is six games out in the division and five games back for a wild card.
