Andy Ibanez homers twice as Tigers top Guardians

guardians, tigers

Andy Ibanez clubbed a solo homer and three-run shot during his 4-for-4 night, and Ryan Vilade recorded his first three career RBIs as the visiting Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Guardians 11-7 on Tuesday.

Ibanez led off the game against Cleveland’s Logan Allen and hit his first homer of the season. He then gave Detroit a 5-2 lead in the second with a three-run blast to right field wall.

Vilade, just called up from Triple-A Toledo, delivered a two-run single in the third for his first major league hit to tie the score 7-7. He also drove home a run with his single in the seventh to help the Tigers even the series and snap a four-game slide, during which they totaled seven runs.

Tyler Holton (3-0) and three other Detroit relievers held Cleveland to just three hits over seven scoreless innings.

Josh Naylor clubbed a two-run homer — his ninth of the season — and Jose Ramirez had three hits with two RBIs for the Guardians, who had won three straight.

Ibanez sent a 2-0 pitch from Allen over the high left-field wall as Detroit opened with a homer for the second consecutive game. However, Tigers right-hander Kenta Maeda surrendered Will Brennan’s two-run double to deep center in the bottom of the first.

Detroit answered in the second as Jake Rogers hit his first of two doubles in the game, and scored on Javier Baez’s single. With Baez on, Allen walked Carson Kelly, then Ibanez went deep to right field.

Cleveland scored five times against Maeda in the second. Estevan Florial delivered an RBI double and Ramirez’s two-run single made it 5-5. Naylor then homered to right to give the Guardians a 7-5 lead.

In Detroit’s third, Riley Greene singled and went to third on Spencer Torkelson’s double that chased Allen. Both came home via Vilade’s single off Pedro Avila (1-1).

Allen was charged with seven runs on seven hits and two walks in 2 1/3 innings. Maeda gave up seven runs on five hits and three walks.

Detroit went ahead for good when Ibanez singled in the fourth, went to third on Wenceel Perez’s single. Ibanez scored on Matt Vierling’s double-play ball. Vierling added a two-run single in the eighth.
