Perez made his major league debut in Saturday afternoon’s game in the 8th inning and grounded out. He looked very comfortable at the plate and had a chance to talk to the media after the game. He was late getting to  Great American Ball Park due to heavy traffic.

Detroit Tigers ace pitcher Justin Verlander pitched a terrific game at Comerica Park on Friday night.

The 29-year-old righthander came within two outs of his third no-hitter, allowing only one hit, Josh Harrison’s ninth-inning single in a 6-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Entering the ninth inning, Verlander had only thrown 95 pitches. He got ahead of Harrison with 1 out and a 1-2 breaking ball which was hit for a soft liner up the middle which shortstop Jhonny Peralta could not get to.

Verlander, now 5-1 on the season, threw the sixth career shutout, his 16th complete game and the 51st straight regular-season start where he pitched at least six innings.

The 29-year-old Virginia native, the 2011 American League MVP and Cy Young Award winner, has a career record of 112-58 with a 3.47 ERA and 1,283 strikeouts.

Verlander has two no-hitters in his career: June 12, 2007 against Milwaukee and May 7, 2011 vs. Toronto.

Indians trade Peralta to division rival Detroit


The Detroit Tigers started to fill an important hole in their lineup at third base, by acquiring Jhonny Peralta from the Cleveland Indians for lefthander Giovanni Soto, a minor leaguer.

The 28-year-old Peralta, will fill in for the injured Brandon Inge, who is out with a broken hand. But Peralta can also play shortstop.

At the time of the trade, Peralta was batting .246 with seven homers and 43 RBI’s.

Soto, a 19-year-old, was pitching for low Class A West Michigan of the Midwest League where he in 82 2/3 innings, he had 76 strikeouts and a 2.61 ERA. He was the Tigers’ 21st-round draft pick last year.

The Indians say that Soto will be assigned to Class A Lake County.

Jeanmar Gomez, Indians handle Tigers and Vermilion native Andy Oliver

compiled from staff and wire reports

Andy Oliver grew up as a Cleveland Indians fan. The rookie left-hander grew up in Vermilion, Ohio which is 40 miles west of Cleveland. He says he still roots for the Tribe, but not when they play his team, the Detroit Tigers.

On Sunday afternoon at Progressive Field, Oliver had family members and several friends on had as he pitched against his childhood team. He wished he hadn’t taken the mound.

Oliver pitched 3 2/3 innings, allowing five runs, walked five, struck out four and allowed four hits while dropping to (0-4).

The Tigers as a team didn’t fare well in the series especially their two sluggers, Magglio Ordonez and Miguel Cabrera who went a combined 5 for 28 with each being struck out five times.

The Indians got rolling early as Jhonny Peralta’s fly ball made to center-field turned into an inside-the-park home run and Jeanmar Gomez won his major league debut as the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 7-2 to complete the four-game sweep.

Cleveland had its first four-game home sweep over Detroit since 1991. The Tigers were outscored in the series 21-8, and has lost five in a row overall and fell to 16-29 on the road and 16-21 against the American League Central Division.

Gomez (1-0), was called-up from Triple-A Columbus to make a spot start, allowed two unearned runs over seven innings.  A Venezuelan who was signed by Cleveland in 2005 at 17, struck out four and allowed only one walk and five hits.

Gomez was called up to pitch in the place of Justin Masterson, who was moved back a day in the rotation to give Gomez a look-see by the Indians organization. But he knew he was in town for one game and he was given a plane ticket to rejoin the Columbus Clippers in Durham, North Carolina for their four-game series with the Durham Bulls which starts Monday night.

The Indians brass have known that Jeanmar Gomez is talented. He pitched a perfect game at Double-A Akron in May of 2009, but the 22-year-old only had a mystifying 6-8 record and a 5.70 ERA in 18 starts for a talented and offensively solid Columbus team this season.

The right-handed Gomez was put at ease early with the Indians scoring 3 runs in the first inning, when Jhonny Peralta had to leg out his seventh home run of the season.

Let’s set the scene. With runners at first and second and two outs, Peralta hit a 1-1 pitch from Andy Oliver towards the Cleveland bullpen in center-field. Detroit centerfielder Ryan Raburn leaped for the ball, but tumbled through the bullpen door. Raburn could’nt get to the ball because no only did he fall into the bullpen, but his uniform had stuck to the bullpen door. The ball caromed off the wall and by the time leftfielder Brennan Boesch could retrieve it, Peralta, one of the slowest runners in baseball, was circling the bases.

Peralta slide home beating the relay throw by shortstop Danny Worth with Cleveland’s first-inside-the-park homer since Grady Sizemore did it against Baltimore on April 27, 2007.

Indians surprise Tigers 8-2 behind Marte and Kearns power-hitting

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers, 8-2 behind Andy Marte and Austin Kearns who both hit two-run homers on Friday night.

Marte broke a 2-all tie in the fourth inning against Max Schertzer (6-7). Kearns’ eighth homer of the season capped a four-run sixth against the Tigers’ bullpen that put Cleveland ahead, 8-2.

Marte was starting in place of Jhonny Peralta who missed an off-day practice Thursday with a fever.

Jake Westbrook (6-5) gave up two runs over 5-2-3 innings to win his first home game start against Detroit since September 18, 2007.

The Tigers came  into the contest, one game behind first place Chicago in the American League Central Division race.

Miguel Cabrera extended his hitting streak to 20 games with a run-scoring single to put the Tigers ahead 1-0 in the first inning.
