CLEVELAND — Miguel Cabrera doubled with one out in the 10th inning to drive in the go-ahead run and lift the Detroit Tigers to a 5-4 win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night.
Ian Kinsler opened the inning with a single off Cody Allen (3-2). Following a sacrifice, Cabrera hit Allen’s second pitch off the wall in left-center, scoring Kinsler.
Justin Verlander was one out away from winning for the only the second time in seven starts, but closer Joe Nathan (4-2) blew a save for the fifth time this season when Michael Bourn’s two-out single tied the score.
Phil Coke pitched the 10th for his first save.
Verlander allowed two runs in seven innings, and Rajai Davis and Kinsler homered in the sixth, giving Detroit a 4-2 lead.
