Lost Weekend: Tigers Thump Tribe, 8-1, To Complete Sweep

For the first time in his career, Jeanmar Gomez looked like the rookie he is this afternoon against Detroit.

The Tigers ripped Gomez (3-2) for eight runs – seven of which were earned – on eleven hits in just three innings as Detroit, behind eight solid frames from Justin Verlander (14-8), trounced the Indians 8-1 to finish a sweep of the three-game set and to earn retribution for the Cleveland sweep of the Tigers right after the All-Star break.

The Tribe returns home on Tuesday to take on the Oakland A’s.
