CLEVELAND, Ohio. - Lonnie Chisenhall singled in the winning run with one out in the ninth inning to give the Cleveland Indians a 7-6 win over Detroit, dealing the Tigers a crucial loss Sunday.
Tigers manager Jim Leyland was ejected and catcher Alex Avila was hurt in a collision with Prince Fielder as they fell two games behind in the AL Central. They go to Chicago to face the first-place White Sox on Monday.
Jason Kipnis doubled off Jose Valverde (3-3) and scored the tying run on a one-out triple by Carlos Santana.
Valverde then intentionally walked Michael Brantley and Ezequiel Carrera to face Chisenhall, who lined the first pitch to right-center.
