(CLEVELAND, OH) - Justin Verlander picked up his 17th win of the season as the Detroit Tigers held off a late Cleveland rally to defeat the Indians 6-5 and complete a three-game series sweep.

The Tigers took the lead for good in the fourth, scoring four runs on RBI singles by Brandon Inge, Gerald Laird, Tamon Santiago and a run-scoring groundout by Curtis Ganderson.

Verlander pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out eleven to move to 17-and-9.

The indians would score twice in the ninth on shin-soo choo's two-run homer, but Fernando Rodney would work out of the jam to record his 35th save.

With the win, Detroit increases its lead over idle Minnesota to three games in the AL Central.

The indians have dropped a season-high eleven-straight games.
