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.
