After falling behind, the Indians stormed back from an early 3-0 deficit to take the lead in the bottom of the sixth. In the fourth, Shin-Soo Choo came through with a two-run single. After a pair of RBI infield singles by Russ Canzler and Carlos Santana and an RBI fielders choice, the Indians were leading 5-3 after six innings.
Then in the top of the seventh, Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run home run to put Detroit ahead 6-5. The Indians would remain silent until the bottom of the ninth, when a Jason Kipnis double and Carlos Santana triple tied the game. Lonnie Chisenhall won the game with a walk-off single.
Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez went six innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits while walking three and striking out two. He got a no decision, as Esmil Rodgers got the win in relief.
