CLEVELAND– With a win on Wednesday afternoon, the Cleveland Indians set a new American League record for consecutive victories.

They beat the Tigers, 5-3.

Tribe pitcher Mike Clevinger gave up a run to the Tigers in the first. But a three-run homer from Jay Bruce gave Cleveland a 3-1 lead.

It was Bruce’s 34th home run of the season, which ties his previous career high set in 2012 with the Cincinnati Reds.

In the third, Jose Ramirez raced to second base for a double and was knocked in by an Edwin Encarnacion single. Before the inning was over, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus and catcher James McCann were ejected from the game.

The Tigers picked up two more runs, making the score 4-3 after six innings.
