CLEVELAND (AP) - Miguel Cabrera homered twice and drove in four runs as the Detroit Tigers moved to 6-0 for the first time in 30 years with an 8-5 win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.

Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the first inning off T.J. House (0-1) and J.D. Martinez added an insurance solo shot in the ninth as the Tigers finished off a series sweep, improving to 18-5 in Cleveland since 2013.

Cabrera went 4 for 4 with the two homers, a double and single. Needing a triple for the cycle, Indians manager Terry Francona intentionally walked him in the eighth even though there was a runner on first.

It's the first time Detroit is 6-0 since 1985.

The Tigers jumped to a 6-0 lead after two innings, giving Kyle Lobstein (1-0) a comfortable cushion.  Joakim Soria worked the ninth for his second save.
