Will Indians complete sweep at Tigers? MLB Predictions 9/3/17

The process is likely to be painful.

In June, the Cleveland infielder became the first player in modern history to get 14 of them - 10 doubles, a triple and three homers - in a seven-game span. The gap between the top and bottom of the division is vast and this was not a fair fight. Roberto Perez had two hits including a homer and three RBI for the Tribe.

MARINERS 10, ATHLETICS 2: Robinson Cano homered and drove in four runs, Andrew Albers took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, and Seattle swept Oakland at home.

Ramirez tied a major league mark with five extra-base hits, including a pair of home runs that deflected off Detroit outfielders, and the Indians routed the Tigers 11-1 for their 11th straight victory.

With 10 players managing the feat since 1913, Lou Boudreau initially registered his five extra-base hits all the way back in 1946 before Joe Adcock, Willie Stargell and Steve Garvey did so between 1954 and 1977. Miguel Cabrera is suspended, Victor Martinez is out after surgery and Justin Verlander and Justin Upton recently were traded. The ball hit the yellow padding on top of the left-field fence, popped straight in the air and bounced off the padding and back into play. Surprised, Mahtook tried to make a bare-handed grab, but was handcuffed and ended up swatting the ball back over the fence.

Ramirez hit a unusual solo homer in the first.


The Indians ruined the first big-league start for Bell. This will be his first start since July 30 when he threw four no-hit innings with five strikeouts at the White Sox before leaving with an injury.

He left a bases-loaded, no-out mess in the fifth inning for rookie Zac Reininger to clean up. Detroit starter Justin Verlander held the risky Colorado attack to a run on three hits and a walk while striking out nine through six innings to up his record to 10-8. "I'm always trying to go out there and pound the strike zone, but that's even more true when I've got a big cushion like that". Francisco Lindor hit a 431-foot home run off him in the sixth. Hundley led off with an opposite-field drive to right on a 1-0 slider from Ryan Sherriff (0-1). It was his 26th home run, setting the Indians' single-season record for shortstops.

Ramirez hit a leadoff double in the eighth and Giovanny Urshela pinch ran.

Daniel Norris, making his first relief appearance, faced four batters and did not record an out in the eighth inning. In the four games, they drew three walks, two of them Sunday.

Pitching for Cleveland will be Josh Tomlin (7-9, 5.38 ERA), while Detroit will turn to Chad Bell (0-1, 5.48).
