Cabrera then lifted a fly to center off Brayan Villarreal.

Kluber (1-3) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings in his seventh career start.

He struck out four and walked one.

Vinnie Pestano allowed two baserunners in the ninth but escaped for his second save.

Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez allowed two unearned runs in six innings.
