Indians Win Opener of Doubleheader

DETROIT (AP) - Corey Kluber came within an out of a complete game, striking out 10 to lift the Cleveland Indians over the Detroit Tigers 6-2 Saturday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

Kluber (10-6) allowed seven hits - three by Miguel Cabrera - and one walk. He was relieved by Bryan Shaw in the ninth after equaling his career high of 114 pitches.

Kluber's only career complete game was April 24 against Kansas City.

Drew VerHagen (0-1) allowed three runs and five hits, lasting five innings in his major league debut. He struck out four of his first six batters, but the 23-year-old right-hander didn't fan another hitter after that bright start.

Cleveland's Yan Gomes had three hits and scored three runs on his 27th birthday.
