Mike Aviles sparked Cleveland's four-run second inning with a two-run double and the Indians downed the Detroit Tigers, 6-2, in the second test of a three-game set Tuesday at Progressive Field.

Michael Bourn and Asdrubal Cabrera each plated a run during the rally in support of starter Trevor Bauer, who was recalled from Triple-A Columbus prior to the game.

Making just his second start of the season and first since April 9, Bauer (1-1) spun six-plus solid frames, allowing just two runs on seven hits and three walks with five strikeouts to pick up the win.

David Murphy added a solo homer in the seventh for the Indians, who claimed a 5-4 victory in Monday's series opener thanks to Michael Brantley's game- winning blast in the bottom of the 10th inning.

Torii Hunter and Alex Avila both homered to account for Detroit's offense, while starter Justin Verlander (5-3) surrendered five runs on 11 hits and three walks over six innings to absorb the loss.

The Tigers had won 11 straight on the road and six in a row overall prior to Monday's extra-inning setback.
