The Tigers didn’t exactly get to Corey Kluber but they touched him for two runs, including another monster blast from Jose Miguel Cabrera, and the rain did the rest. Both starters, Kluber and Simon, only lasted five innings thanks to a two hour rain delay. The Tigers then beat the Indians pen into a conniption.
J.D. Martinez got some redemption with a three run homer to break the game open after the rain delay that extended the Tigers lead to 5-0.
It is one game, one series, but we’ll take it.
The Reds come to town tomorrow and we’ll welcome Nebraska back.
