DETROIT (AP) — Carlos Santana hit a tiebreaking, bases-clearing double with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting the Cleveland Indians to a 5-2 win Saturday night that sealed a sweep of the doubleheader.

The Indians have won four straight, three in a row at Detroit, to pull within 4 ½ games of the AL Central-leading Tigers.

Cleveland won the first game 6-2 thanks in large part to Corey Kluber’s strong outing.

Chris Dickerson hit a pair of solo homers off Max Scherzer— in the third and sixth innings — to give Cleveland a 2-1 lead in the second game of the day-night doubleheader.
