Cabera Walk-Off Leads Improbable Comeback

DETROIT (AP) -- Miguel Cabrera's two-run homer capped a stunning five-run rally by Detroit with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving the Tigers a 10-8 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.
Cleveland has lost nine straight, and this one slipped away in unthinkable fashion. With two outs and nobody on -- and the Indians up 8-5 -- Chris Perez (0-3) walked Alex Avila and pinch-hitter Andy Dirks. Austin Jackson doubled home a run, and Omar Infante's two-run single tied it.
Cabrera followed with a towering drive that eventually cleared the fence in left-center. Detroit never had the lead before then.
Travis Hafner and Ezequiel Carrera had hit back-to-back solo homers for Cleveland in the 10th.
Detroit's Darin Downs (1-0) earned his first career win.
