The Indians have their own version of pick your poison. The Tigers intentionally walked All-Star Michael Brantley to load the bases with two out Satuday night to face free-swinging Carlos Santana and paid the price. Santana lined a three-run double off the right field wall against closer Joe Nathan to give the Indians a 5-2 victory and complete a day-night doubleheader sweep of the defending AL Central champs. Until Santana delivered in the ninth, the Indians' offense consisted of two homers by Chris Dickerson off starter Max Scherzer. Carlos Carrasco pitched through the heart of the Tigers' lineup in the eighth for the victory and Cody Allen earned his 13th save.
