Indians score 7 in 7th of 9-3 win over Tigers

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) - Jason Kipnis hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer and Asdrubal Cabrera sent the next pitch over the right-field fence to cap a seven-run seventh inning and help the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 9-3 on Friday night.

Kipnis hit another home run, a solo shot, in the Indians' two-run ninth.

Trevor Bauer (4-4) gave up three runs on six hits over six innings.

Detroit's Anibal Sanchez (6-4) retired the first seven batters he faced and had a 3-0 lead. He ended up giving up four runs, six hits, walking one and striking out seven in an uneven performance.

The AL Central-leading Tigers won 17 of 23 games going into the All-Star break. Cleveland has won seven of its last 10 games.
