Tigers rally in 8th to top Indians after Gardenhire news

The Detroit Tigers scored four eighth-inning runs following the retirement of their manager prior to the game and downed the visiting Cleveland Indians 5-2 on Saturday.

Ron Gardenhire cited health reasons for his sudden departure. He was replaced by Lloyd McClendon, who will manage the club for the remainder of the season.

Eric Haase and Daz Cameron each had two hits, a run scored and an RBI. Victor Reyes and Harold Castro each reached base three times and drove in a run for Detroit (22-29).

Jose Ramirez drove in both runs for the Indians (28-24). Cleveland starter Triston McKenzie lasted four innings, giving up one run on six hits with three strikeouts and three walks.

Detroit, which was winless when behind after seven innings entering Saturday, trailed 2-1 in the eighth when it rallied against reliever Phil Maton (2-3). Castro walked and Niko Goodrum blooped a one-out single. Haase smacked a single to drive in pinch-runner Derek Hill and Cameron slapped a single to right to knock in Goodrum.

Jose Cisnero (3-3) collected the victory after getting the final two outs in the eighth and Bryan Garcia struck out three batters in the ninth for his third save.
