DETROIT (AP) Yan Gomes hit a two-run triple, Zach McAllister allowed a run and four hits in six innings and the Cleveland Indians held on for a 3-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night.
McAllister (2-0) walked two and struck out four and John Axford pitched the ninth for his fifth save for Cleveland, which had lost 18 of its previous 23 against Detroit.
Axford got out of a jam with a runner on third to seal the win. Alex Avila doubled and went to third on an error by center fielder Michael Bourn with one out. Axford then struck out pinch hitter Don Kelly and got Rajai Davis on a groundout to end the game.
