Brantley's homer in 10th beats Tigers 5-4


Michael Brantley homered with two outs in the 10th inning off Al Alburquerque, giving the Cleveland Indians a 5-4 win over the drowsy Detroit Tigers on Monday night.


Brantley connected on a 3-2 pitch, driving it into the Tigers' bullpen to end Cleveland's four-game losing streak and Detroit's 11-game road winning streak.


Scott Atchison (1-0) pitched a perfect 10th, retiring Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez for the first two outs.


Detroit's J.D. Martinez hit a pinch-hit homer in the ninth to tie it 4-all, but the Tigers couldn't muster more magic in extra innings.


The Tigers arrived just three hours before the first pitch because of travel delays from Boston.
