The Score: Tigers 11 – Indians 3

The Gist: Hey-yo! The Tigers showed no mercy on Justin Masterson, the Indians, Eric Wedge or the drum-beat guy. Instead, they dropped 11 runs on Cleveland — thanks to a pair of Carlos Guillen homers and a 440-foot missile from Miguel Cabrera — and Rick Porcello (14-9) was sturdy in five innings of work. Guillen finished with three hits and four other Tigers had two hits.

The Quote: “It’s good to have him back.”Jim Leyland on Guillen.

The Stat: 1.80 — Porcello’s ERA in four starts against Cleveland this season.

Magic Number: 9
