CLEVELAND, Aug. 7 (UPI) -- Prince Fielder doubled home two runs in the 14th inning Wednesday and Detroit held on to win its 11th straight, 6-5 over Cleveland.
The Tigers have captured the first three games of the four-game series between the top two teams in the American League Central. Those three victories have built Detroit's lead to six games over the Indians.
Detroit came from a run down to take a 4-3 lead in the eighth inning on a two-run homer by Miguel Cabrera. The Indians tied it in the bottom half of the frame on a run-scoring ground out by Yan Gomes and it remained a 4-4 contest until the 14th.
Austin Jackson opened the 14th with a double off Bryan Shaw (2-3) and, one out later, Hernan Perez drew a walk. That brought up Fielder, who delivered both runners with a double to left against Matt Rzepczynski.
