DETROIT — Mike Clevinger pitched six sharp innings and the Cleveland Indians swept a day-night doubleheader, routing the Detroit Tigers 10-0 Friday for their ninth straight win.

Roberto Perez homered and drove in three runs to back Clevinger (8-5), who allowed three hits, struck out six and walked one. In three starts against the Tigers this year – all wins – he has given up one run in 18 innings.

The AL Central-leading Indians won the opener 3-2 on Francisco Lindor’s tiebreaking single in the ninth inning.

The game was tied at 2 in the ninth when pinch-hitter Jay Bruce tripled with one out off Shane Greene (3-3). Lindor singled through the drawn-in infield.

RAYS 3, WHITE SOX 1: Logan Morrison hit his 34th homer and drove in three runs, Blake Snell pitched into the seventh inning to win his third straight decision and Tampa Bay won at Chicago.

Morrison, who went 3 for 4, has five homers in his last five games. He’s hitting .480 (12 for 25) with 11 RBI during that span.


CUBS 2, BRAVES 0: John Lackey pitched seven crisp innings, Javier Baez’s daring baserunning paid off again and host Chicago won its fifth straight.

Lackey (11-10) allowed three hits, struck out five and walked none. The Cubs took the lead when Baez scored from second on Kyle Schwarber’s dribbler down the third-base line.

PHILLIES 2, MARLINS 1: Philadelphia was shut out for seven innings by major league newcomer Dillon Peters but rallied for two runs in the ninth to win at Miami and extended the Marlins’ losing streak to five games.

Major league home run leader Giancarlo Stanton went 0 for 2 with two walks and is 1 for 17 this week.

REDS 7, PIRATES 3: Adam Duvall drove in two runs to lead Cincinnati at Pittsburgh.

Duvall broke the game open in the first inning with a two-run single off Pirates starter Gerrit Cole. He singled and scored in the third and reached on a wild pitch and scored in the eighth.

BREWERS 1, NATIONALS 0: Jimmy Nelson scattered three singles and struck out 11 over seven innings and Milwaukee won at home.

Neil Walker, obtained from the New York Mets on Aug. 12, homered in the first inning off Tanner Roark (11-9).
