Bauer tames Tigers as Indians win 6-2

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND (AP) -

Trevor Bauer outpitched former Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander and tamed Detroit's menacing lineup, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 6-2 win over the Tigers on Tuesday night.

Bauer (1-1) was recalled earlier in the day for his second start this season, and the right-hander held the AL's top hitting team to just two runs and seven hits in six-plus innings.

Mike Aviles hit a two-run double in the second when the Indians scored four runs off Verlander (5-3), who didn't settle in until the damage was already done.

David Murphy homered in the seventh for last-place Cleveland.
