Cleveland, OH -- Jason Kipnis scored the go-ahead run on Prince Fielder's throwing error in the eighth inning, as the Indians pulled out a 4-2 victory over the Tigers in the second meeting of a three-game set.

Travis Hafner belted a two-run homer for Cleveland, which came back to defeat its AL Central rival for the second straight night and are currently on a 7-2 stretch.

Vinnie Pestano (2-0) worked out of bases-loaded, no-out situation in the eighth to pick up the win, while Phil Coke (1-1) gave up two unearned runs in the bottom half to take the loss.

Detroit went 2-for-12 with runners in scoring position and stranded 10 in falling for the fifth time in seven games.
