Detroit, MI, United States (4E Sports) - Drew Smyly pitched seven innings of one-run ball while Torii Hunter hit a two-run shot as the Detroit Tigers avoided a sweep with a 5-1 win over the Cleveland Indians in the finale of a four-game series Sunday at Comerica Park.

Smyly (6-8) allowed four hits with two walks and six strikeouts to help the Tigers (54-41) end a four-game slide and avoid their first four-game sweep to the Indians in Detroit.

With the win, the Tigers extended their lead over the Indians in the American League Central to 5 ½ games.

Josh Tomlin (5-7) took the loss after giving up four runs on six hits with a walk and three strikeouts in 4 1/3 frames for the Indians (50-48), who have never taken a four-game sweep in the Motor City.

Detroit never trailed, with Austin Jackson hitting a leadoff double and scoring on Ian Kinsler's single in the first.

Ryan Raburn's throw home allowed Kinsler to take second, giving him a chance to come around on back-to-back fly balls from Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez for a 2-0 lead.

In the fourth, Hunter smacked Tomlin's hanging breaking ball over the left field wall for a four-run lead.

Gomes hammered his 13th homer of the season to left with two outs in the seventh but Detroit's bullpen took care of the final six outs to seal the win.
