Indians Vs. Tigers Final Score: Cleveland Loses Game 2 At Home

After a 3-2 win in Game 1, the Cleveland Indians were unable to sustain the momentum against the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night. They lost 5-3 at home, falling back to four games behind first-place Detroit in the AL Central.

The Indians managed only five hits on the night, with their scoring coming off a Casey Kotchman two-run home run in the third inning and a Travis Hafner solo shot in the ninth.

Starting pitcher Derek Lowe pitched six innings, gave up eight hits, four earned runs, struck out one and walked three. Two costly errors by Asdrubal Cabrera did not help his cause.

The series will conclude with Game 3 Thursday night. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. ET at Progressive Field.
