Box Score: Tigers 4, Indians 0

So this one was pretty much over in the first inning, right? Justin Verlander against Corey Kluber isn’t really fair, and after Detroit scored 2 in the first, then 2 more in the second, this one was over.

Kudos to the bullpen — Chris Seddon and Frank Herrmann — at least, for settling the score at that. But Verlander went a very solid seven innings and the abysmal Indians offense couldn’t muster anything.

Top 1st: Detroit
– D. Young singled to shallow center, M. Cabrera scored, P. Fielder to second
– B. Boesch singled to shallow center, P. Fielder scored, D. Young to second
Top 2nd: Detroit
– A. Jackson doubled to shallow right, A. Avila scored
– M. Cabrera singled to shallow center, A. Jackson scored
