Indians Vs. Tigers Final Score: Cleveland Bats Cold Once Again In 6-1 Loss

In what amounted to their eighth consecutive loss, the Cleveland Indians came up well short against the Tigers on Saturday night in another woeful defeat, 6-1.

Held without a hit until two outs remaining in the sixth inning by Tigers pitcher Doug Fister, Cleveland batters once again opened a game ice cold offensively before heating up when it was far too late. After Fister had already posted eight shutout innings and entered the final frame looking to cap off a scoreless outing, only then did Indians hitters break through for a run and a pair of hits.

With two of his team's four hits on the day, 25-year-old outfielder Ezequiel Carrera was the unquestioned star of the evening for the Indians with a 2-for-3 game that included a pair of triples. Carrera's first three-base hit of the night ultimately broke up Fister's perfect game in the sixth, and his second started the all-too-late rally in the ninth where he later scored a run. Now with a pair of multi-hit games since being called up by Cleveland before Friday's game, Carrera should continue to see the starting lineup while his teammates continue to flounder.
