Snap reaction: Hey, the Tigers scored some runs!
Sudden realization: Hey, the Tigers gave up even more runs!
Max Scherzer allowed eight runs in 4 1/3 innings on the mound. Only five were earned though. Brennan Boesch committed an error on a fly ball to right field with two outs in the first. The next pitch left the ballpark for a 3-run home run ... by a Cleveland batter who hadn't hit a home run all season.
Yep, that kind of season. Scherzer only got worse from there.
Meanwhile the Tigers did score a bunch of runs -- four in the bottom of the fifth inning even.
Don Kelly and Miguel Cabrera both hit solo home runs earlier in the game.
Jhonny Peralta had two hits -- including a ninth-inning triple to right field.
Making his MLB debut, catcher Bryan Holaday did have his first major-league hit. He also made the last out of the game.
Johnny Damon stole a home run from Prince Fielder earlier in the game. Quintin Berry stole an extra-base hit from the Indians in the ninth with a long run to left-center field, capped by a diving catch.
Detroit is now 12-16 at home this year. They're 1-4 on the home stand and 0-5 against the Indians.
