 DETROIT (AP) -- Miguel Cabrera once again tagged Corey Kluber and the Indians, hitting a booming home run and leading the Detroit Tigers over Cleveland 8-1 Sunday. Cabrera hit his 14th homer, a solo drive in the fourth inning that went an estimated 450 feet into the left edge of the batter's eye. It landed close to the 452-footer he hit Friday night. The two-time AL MVP is 20 for 35 with five homers in his career against Kluber (3-8). The reigning Cy Young Award winner lost his third straight decision. Cabrera had three hits and scored three times. He went 7 for 11 in the series with a pair of homers and six RBIs. J.D. Martinez added a three-run homer for the Tigers on a soggy afternoon. Alfredo Simon (7-3) allowed three hits and struck out five in the first five innings. Heavy, persistent rain delayed the game for 1:51 after the fifth.
