(Detroit, MI)  --  Trevor Bauer fired eight shutout innings as the Indians blanked the Tigers 6-0 at Comerica Park.  Bauer struck out 10 while giving up four hits and no walks as he evened his record at 3-and-3.  

Michael Brantley went 3-for-5 with a solo homer for the Tribe, which avoided a three-game sweep.  Francisco Lindor, Erik Gonzalez and Jason Kipnis all plated a run and scored in the victory.  

Ryan Carpenter was tagged for six runs, five earned, in five frames to suffer his first loss.  The Tigers had won their previous three.
