Aaron Civale coasts, Jordan Luplow drives in 5 as Cleveland Indians pound Detroit Tigers 11-3

Franmil Reyes hit his third homer in two days, Roberto Pérez and Andrés Giménez each added two-run homers and César Hernández hit a solo shot.

CLEVELAND — (AP) Aaron Civale allowed just three hits while dominating Detroit over 7 2/3 innings and was backed by five home runs, including Jordan Luplow's three-run shot, as the Cleveland Indians pounded the Tigers 11-3.

Luplow added a two-run double and finished with a career-high five RBIs. Franmil Reyes hit his third homer in two days, Roberto Pérez and Andrés Giménez each added two-run homers and César Hernández hit a solo shot for Cleveland (4-3). Luplow's homer in the fourth off Tigers starter Tarik Skubal put the Tribe ahead 6-0.

Robbie Grossman and Jeimer Candelario homered for the Tigers (3-5), but only after the game was well out of reach. Detroit managed just five hits on the evening, three of them by Grossman.

Cleveland and Detroit will wrap up their three-game series Sunday afternoon. Logan Allen (0-1, 3.60 ERA) will get the start for the Indians against the Tigers' Jose Urena (0-1, 15.00)
