Tigers can't shut down Kluber, Indians win 5-2

Tigers swept by AL Central-leading Cleveland

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.
