Tigers offense struggles again as Indians complete sweep

Cleveland — Coming off three straight losses, with the offense scuffling, losing both Julio Teheran (shoulder) and Miguel Cabrera (biceps strain) in successive days and still only three games into a 10-game trip, it would have been easy for the Tigers to drag tail into the series finale against the Indians Sunday.

Except their manager wouldn’t let them.

The Indians' Franmil Reyes is safe at second as the ball gets away from the Tigers' Willi Castro during the sixth inning Sunday in Cleveland.

“This has not been a great week for us but if your chin is already down and you are already defeated after eight games, that’s a problem,” AJ Hinch said before the game.
