(CLEVELAND) – Francisco Lindor sparked Cleveland's slumbering offense with one big swing. Then he kept going. Lindor hit his fourth career leadoff homer, drove in three runs and scored three times, and the Indians beat Detroit 9-3 on Thursday night for their 11th consecutive victory against the Tigers. Jose Ramirez also homered for the Indians, who own the worst team batting average in the majors at .189. Jason Kipnis and Bradley Zimmer had three hits apiece. Cleveland set season high for runs and hits with 15 while finishing off a four-game series sweep. Trevor Bauer (1-1) tossed seven innings of two run ball in his first over Detroit since May 2016. Lindor began his night with a nine-pitch at-bat against Michael Fulmer (1-2), resulting in his drive into the bleachers in left field. He added a two-run double in the second. Leonys Martin posted his second consecutive three-hit game and scored twice for the Tigers, who have lost 17 of their last 22 games at Progressive Field. Nicholas Castellanos delivered a pair of RBI singles. The Tigers committed three errors in the first four innings, compounding a poor outing by Fulmer. The right-hander was charged with a career-high nine runs, six earned, in three-plus innings. Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera singled in the seventh, tying Hall of Famer Jimmie Foxx for 78th place with 2,646 career hits. Next up for Cabrera, who went 4 of 23 on Detroit's seven-game road trip, is Ted Williams with 2,654.
