Bieber sharp, Martin steals home as Indians beat Tigers 4-2

DETROIT (AP) Shane Bieber pitched impressively into the eighth inning, and Leonys Martin stole home to lift the Cleveland Indians to a 4-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.

Bieber (6-2) allowed four hits and struck out 12 in 7 2/3 innings. Detroit managed only one baserunner through the first six innings before scoring twice in the seventh.

Martin provided the highlight of the game in the eighth, taking off from third while reliever Victor Alcantara was preparing to make a pitch. Alcantara stepped off and threw to the plate, and although the ball arrived at the same time as Martin, the Cleveland runner's hand knocked the ball away as he reached for home.
