DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers have been losing to Cleveland all season, so it was fitting that the Indians celebrated their AL Central title at Comerica Park.Its hard to explain the one-sided nature of this series this year. All the Tigers know is that theyll be in real trouble if it doesnt change soon.Buck Farmer allowed four runs in five innings, and Detroit couldnt rally against the Cleveland bullpen, losing 7-4 on Monday night to fall two games behind Baltimore for the second AL wild card. The Indians clinched the division crown, improving to 14-2 against the Tigers this season.I cant really explain it, but the truth is, theyve outplayed us, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. Theyve outhit us, theyve outpitched us, theyve out-defended us. Its simple.Corey Kluber left after four innings with right groin tightness, joining Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar in a group of talented Cleveland pitchers dealing with injuries. But even those concerns were secondary when the Indians poured onto the field to celebrate their first division title since 2007.Its hard, man. It is so hard to explain how hard winning is, manager Terry Francona said. Weve had some challenges thrown our way, but so has everyone else. We managed to get this far, and now we get to play more baseball.Cleveland last made the postseason in 2013 as a wild card.Coco Crisp and Roberto Perez homered for the Indians, and Jason Kipnis doubled in a run.Farmer (0-1) yielded four hits and four walks.Andrew Miller (10-1) won in relief, and Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his 30th save in 33 chances.Crisp and Detroits J.D. Martinez traded two-run homers in the second, and Cleveland took the lead for good in the fifth on the double by Kipnis. Mike Napolis sacrifice fly later that inning made it 4-2.With the division title 15 outs away, the Indians took the field for the bottom of the fifth without their ace. Kluber, the team leader with 18 wins, was replaced by Dan Otero, and the announcement about the 2014 AL Cy Young Award winners groin problem came a little while later.Miguel Cabrera made it 4-3 with an RBI single, but Perez led off the seventh with a drive to right to put the Indians back up by two.Cabrera added another run-scoring single in the seventh, but Perez -- who entered the game hitting .168 -- answered with another big hit in the eighth, lining an RBI single up the middle.Cleveland made it 7-4 on an error by Martinez in right.Miller, the third reliever for the Indians, struck out four of the six hitters he faced before giving way to Allen. The final out came on a strikeout by Cameron Maybin.Now the Tigers have to face the prospect of three more games this week against a Cleveland team thats dominated them.Try to win the next game. Theres nothing you can do, second baseman Ian Kinsler said. You play hard, you prepare, you get ready to play, hopefully it turns around one particular day, and hopefully that days tomorrow.FRIENDLY CROWDThe Indians werent able to clinch the division at home, but Detroit is only about 170 miles from Cleveland, and there were plenty of fans chanting Lets Go Tribe! after this one was over. A large group of Indians supporters gathered behind their dugout on the first base side.It was awesome, especially that last inning when theyre all chanting, going crazy, Napoli said. Obviously, we wanted to do it at home, but to be able to come here, play Detroit, a team that we can get it done against, its nice.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: Salazar (strained forearm) threw a bullpen session before the game.Tigers: Ausmus said 3B Nick Castellanos (left hand) could be back before the weekend.

LOUIS -- The New Orleans Saints looked like a team playing out the string. AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan has dismissed criticism of Hawthorns trade for Gold Coast youngster Jaeger OMeara, declaring it perfectly legal.OMeara joined the Hawks late on the final day of the AFL trade period in a complicated swap that included Hawthorns first-round pick this year as well as next years second-round selection.Such a move had been thought to be in contravention of the AFLs own rules because the Hawks had already traded out their first-round pick at the 2017 draft in a separate deal with St Kilda.But McLachlan said all clubs had been made fully aware of the new guidelines and rejected any suggestion of confusion or impropriety.I reckon the rules are clear ... the trade was perfectly legal and I dont think theres any grey (area) in that, McLachlan told reporters on Wednesday.If anybody needed any clarification, they spoke to (AFL salary cap executive) Ken Wood during the process and I think they got pretty clear answers.The AFL introduced future draft-pick tradiing in 2015 as it attempted to make it easier for clubs to get deals done during the trade period.ddddddddddddHowever, strict rules were put in place to safeguard against clubs placing their future drafts in jeopardy in search of short-term success.The Hawks and the Suns remained locked in a stalemate over OMearas value as the trade period deadline approached.The crucial factor in getting the deal done was Hawthorns ability to secure a second-round pick next year in a separate deal with Greater Western Sydney that also included Carlton.The AFL initially announced the Hawks had included that pick in the OMeara deal, which would have broken the rules.It was an administrative error, McLachlan said.They talked about GWS second-round pick next year instead of Hawthorns.I reckon people can be happy that its a clerical error. I think its been a little over-hyped. Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys ' ' '
