DETROIT, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Armando Galarraga struck out eight over seven innings Friday and teamed with two relievers to bring the Detroit Tigers a 6-0 victory over Cleveland.

The Tigers ended a three-game losing streak while limiting the Indians to three hits.

Galarraga (4-5) retired the first 14 men he faced before giving up a two-out double to Jayson Nix in the fifth. Ryan Perry and Phil Coke each worked a perfect inning of relief to finish off the shutout.

Will Rhymes reached on a bunt single in the opening inning and a run scored on the play when catcher Lou Marson threw wildly to first. Rhymes then scored on a single by Asdrubal Cabrera.

The Tigers added two runs in the second on RBI singles from Gerald Laird and Austin Jackson.

Justin Masterson (4-12) took the loss, giving up five runs on 11 hits in six innings. He has had only one victory since July 1.
