Ramirez hits 2 HRs and 3 doubles, Indians win 11th in row

Before the day was out, Ramirez would add three doubles and another home run (this one bounced out of right fielder Alex Presley's glove on its way out of the park), but none were stranger than the first inning homer to left.

"I knew it wasn't a home run because it didn't go over the fence", Mahtook said.

Once again overpowered by a much better opponent and once again not getting sufficient starting pitching from Jordan Zimmermann, the Tigers lost to the Indians, 5-2 at Comerica Park. The first one, off Chad Bell in the first, hit off the yellow padding atop the fence in left field. "All the guys were giving me a hard time about when I got back to the dugout".

"We haven't handled him in two years", Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said.

"I've never seen that before", Mahtook said.

"This is a bunch of young guys facing one of the best teams in baseball and some of the best pitchers in baseball". 3B Jeimer Candelario, obtained from the Cubs in July as part of the deal for LHP Justin Wilson and C Alex Avila, is going to get plenty of time at third, Ausmus said.

Tigers: RHP Anibal Sanchez (hamstring) is scheduled to return to the rotation Tuesday, while LHP Daniel Norris (groin) will work out of the bullpen.

With Boston Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant accomplishing this feat in 2015 and 2016, respectively, Ramirez has now made it three consecutive seasons in which a big league player has recorded at least five extra-base hits in a single game.

Tigers: DH Victor Martinez (irregular heartbeat) will miss the rest of the season after having a minor surgical procedure to fix the issue. Trevor Bauer (14-8, 4.46) is scheduled to start today's opener against James Shields (2-5, 5.72). Artie Lewicki will start for the Tigers in his major league debut, facing Jakob Junis (6-2, 4.41).
