José Ramírez hit a solo homer in the sixth inning, breaking Hall of Famer Larry Doby’s franchise record with his 87th career go-ahead blast and lifting the Cleveland Guardians over the Detroit Tigers 2-1 on Monday night.

Ramírez’s drive off starter Jack Flaherty (0-2) hit the foul pole in right field, snapping a 1-all tie that had stood since the first. The Guardians have the second-best record in the American League at 23-12.

“Ramírez is one of the best hitters in the league and I made one mistake to him — and he took advantage,” Flaherty said. “The one pitch I pulled all the way across the plate was supposed to be in. I hated the location of it.”

Nick Sandlin (3-0) worked 1 1/3 innings for the win and Emmanuel Clase earned his 11th save, moving into a four-way tie for most in the majors. Sandlin, Clase and teammate Scott Barlow share the big league lead with 19 appearances.
