Alex Faedo sharp as Detroit Tigers salvage split in Cleveland, 4-2

CLEVELAND — The Detroit Tigers’ offense scored early runs. Right-hander Alex Faedo pitched into the sixth inning and earned his first MLB win. And the bullpen kept the Cleveland Guardians scoreless.

Those ingredients helped the Tigers snap a three-game losing streak.

The Tigers topped the Guardians, 4-2, in Sunday’s series finale at Progressive Field. The series was supposed to be three games between the American League Central rivals, but Saturday’s clash was postponed due to rain.

“It was a good game,” manager AJ Hinch said. “We played pretty well all the way around. … There was a lot to like today.”

Detroit Tigers designated hitter Miguel Cabrera (24) hits an RBI double during the first inning against the Cleveland Guardians at Progressive Field.
