Detroit Tigers suggest turning point is here with sweep of Guardians

Detroit — The crowd was modest, per usual these days.

But it also was quite into it, not per usual.

Guardians catcher Sandy Leon can't hold on to the ball as Tigers baserunner Javier Baez slides into home plate to score on a single by Miguel Cabrera in the fifth inning.

Miguel Cabrera had a two-out single in the fifth inning, drawing a roar much louder than you’d expect from a crowd of 17,829, and Kody Clemens later homered as the Tigers beat the Cleveland Guardians, 8-2, on Wednesday to complete a four-game sweep at Comerica Park.

BOX SCORE: Tigers 8, Guardians 2

The four-game winning streak matches the Tigers’ longest of the season. For the series, the Tigers, with the worst offense in baseball, scored 28 runs. That’s the most they’ve scored over a four-game stretch this year. For some perspective, from June 3 through June 17, they scored 23 runs in 13 games.
