    Cleveland Indians’ Triston McKenzie stymies Detroit Tigers

    Detroit — Manager AJ Hinch was asked the other day if he believed in the notion that one team can simply have another team’s number.

    “No,” was his answer. It may have been the first one-word answer he’s ever given, but the look on his face made it clear no further explanation was coming, or needed.

    The Tigers' Miguel Cabrera heads back to the dugout after he strikes out on a foul tip in the first inning Sunday at Comerica Park.

    Maybe he just hasn’t been here long enough. Because the Cleveland Indians, since 2015, have absolutely had the Tigers’ number.

    They wrapped up another season series romp putting a 11-0 hurt on the Tigers on Sunday. Not only did they ruin right-hander Drew Hutchison’s return to the big leagues after three years, they almost made their own history with starter Triston McKenzie flirting with a perfect game.

    BOXSCORE: Indians 11, Tigers 0

    “It was clearly his day today,” Hinch said. “He had his way through our lineup. It was a good day for him and not a good day for us on a lot of levels. Luckily we have a day off (Monday) to get this feeling out of the way and get to a new team and a new series.”
