DETROIT – Jordan Luplow made a diving catch on Eric Haase’s sinking liner to right field with the bases loaded and two outs in ninth, preserving a 6-5 victory for the Indians over the Tigers on Monday night in Detroit. Luplow, who entered as a defensive replacement an inning earlier, made the clutch grab for the final out to help closer Emmanuel Clase escape with his eighth save in nine chances. Cleveland scored three unearned runs in the seventh to take a 6-3 lead, and although Willi Castro hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the inning, Detroit was unable to come all the way back. Jean Carlos Mejía (1-0) pitched a scoreless sixth for his first major league win.
