CLEVELAND -- Chris Perez didnt bother sticking around. Air Max 2018 Sale . After blowing what would have been the Indians biggest win this season, Clevelands closer bolted before answering any questions. He ducked out. He didnt finish anything well Monday night. Perez gave up Alex Avilas three-run homer in the ninth inning as the Detroit Tigers rallied for a 4-2 win over the Indians to increase their lead in the AL Central to four games over Cleveland. Perez (4-2), who became a distraction earlier this season when he was arrested on misdemeanour drug charges, was brought in to protect a 2-0 lead. But the right-hander, pitching his in his third straight game, didnt retire a batter and walked dejectedly to Clevelands dugout in the ninth after giving up Avilas shot as Indians fans booed him mercilessly. Perez quickly dressed after the game and left his teammates to answer what went wrong. "We gotta win those games, thats how I see it," said centre fielder Michael Bourn, who made one of four excellent defensive plays by the Indians. "Thats a tough team over there, granted. But thats a swing game. Its not the end of the world. Its not the end of the season, but we want those games." On the same day a year ago in Detroit, Perez, who had recorded 11 straight saves since coming off the disabled list, gave up five runs in the 10th inning as the Indians lost 10-8 to the Tigers. That loss came in an 11-game losing streak and during a month in which the Indians went 5-24 and fell from contention. Manager Terry Francona believes the team can bounce back after a demoralizing defeat. "It hurt, but well show up tomorrow," Francona said. "We certainly need to be resilient and weve shown that before. If we allow it to get in the way then were not the team I thought we were." Detroit was three outs away from having its lead in the AL Central cut to two games by the second-place Indians before the comeback, which eased a difficult day in which the Tigers learned they would be without All-Star shortstop Jhonny Peralta for his involvement in the Biogenesis drug case. "It feels good after all the stuff that happened before the game," centre fielder Torii Hunter said. "We went out there and battled. We kept our focus and were professionals about it. We did what were capable of doing." After Victor Martinezs RBI single made it 2-1, Perez walked Andy Dirks before Avila drove a 1-0 pitch over the wall in left-centre for his ninth homer, stunning a Cleveland crowd ready to celebrate the teams biggest win this season. The Indians fell to 3-10 against the Tigers, who have beaten them in nine of the last 10 matchups. Cleveland also had its home winning streak snapped at 11. "We cant depend on whoever it is out there to knock them out first and think were going to win the division," Bourn said. "Weve got to do it ourselves. Thats the only way you can do it. Its not an easy task, but it can be done, but youve got to be able to knock them out." Al Alburquerque (2-2) got one in the eighth and Joaquin Benoit worked the ninth for his 13th save. Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez struck out 11 in 7 2-3 innings, and was in line to take a tough loss before the Tigers stormed back for their 13th win in 14 games. Clevelands Corey Kluber had blanked Detroits big bats for 7 1-3 innings and set the tone in a crucial four-game series before the Indians problematic bullpen blew it. "Kluber was filthy," Hunter said. "That guy is nasty. We were scratching our heads like, What can we do to get this guy?" Detroits comeback also spoiled a great defensive effort by the Indians, who got excellent plays from Bourn, left fielder Michael Brantley and All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis. "Up until the ninth, we had played such a good game," Francona said. Kluber limited the Tigers to six singles and got some excellent defence, but the Indians couldnt close out a game that was within their grasp. The right-hander settled in after a somewhat shaky start and held the ALs top hitting team in check. Detroits Miguel Cabrera, back in the lineup after missing a few games with hip and abdominal problems, went 1 for 4 -- he was walked intentionally in the ninth -- and laboured noticeably any time he tried to run. The Indians took a 2-0 lead in the fourth on Carlos Santanas RBI double, a shot off the right-field wall that just missed being a two-run homer. Jason Giambis RBI single gave the Indians a 1-0 lead in the second, when Tigers centre fielder Austin Jackson robbed Lonnie Chisenhall of a possible homer. Brantley singled with one out and stole second. With two down, Giambi, closing in on 2,000 career hits, delivered his run-scoring single to centre. Chisenhall followed with a drive to centre that Jackson snared with a leaping grab at the wall in front of the Indians bullpen. NOTES: Brantley recorded his AL-leading 10th assist in the first when he gunned down Hunter at second trying to stretch a single. ... Santana is batting .335 with runners in scoring position. ... Indians ace Justin Masterson (13-7) will face Justin Verlander (11-8) in Tuesdays game. ...

DAmigo scored twice in regulation and added the shootout winner as the Toronto Marlies edged the San Antonio Rampage 5-4 in American Hockey League action. COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- As defensive coordinator at Michigan last year, DJ Durkin guided a unit that allowed an average of 261 yards and 16.4 points per game.Now the head coach at Maryland, Durkin watched in dismay last weekend as the Terrapins yielded 650 yards -- 414 on the ground -- in a 42-36 loss at Indiana.As he prepares for his return to Michigan on Saturday, Durkin knows his defense must improve dramatically if the Terrapins are to have any chance at all of upsetting the second-ranked Wolverines (8-0, 5-0 Big Ten).The first step is determining what went wrong against Indiana.Theres a whole list of things, Durkin said Tuesday. What we have to do is get our guys playing better fundamentally and within the scheme. As a young team, theres like a sense of panic that sets in when you get hit on a couple plays and things arent working. Guys start to do their own thing.Maryland (5-3, 2-3) had an opportunity to become bowl-eligible with a victory. The Terrapins rolled up 517 yards and five touchdowns, but it wasnt enough to overcome a defense that allowed 34 first downs and permitted three different players to rush for at least 100 yards.Looking at the film, they just caught us, defensive tackle Roman Braglio said. It was not our best game, to say the least. This week, were definitely going to improve.Durkin has spent hours looking at the film in an effort to determine the flaws of a defense that is surrendering an average of 401.5 yards and 23.2 points.We have all the signs of a team that has a bunch of promise. But also, its a young team and we play that way, he said. Were inconsistent right now. Individually and as a whoole, theres a lot of ups and downs. Orange Air Max 2018. Returning to Michigan isnt going to be a trip down memory lane for Durkin, who worked under Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh for only one year before being hired by Maryland last December.I really enjoyed my time there, so being back there will be nice, Durkin said. Its a great place. My family enjoyed it. But youre there to play a football game. When you travel for games, you go to the hotel and have meetings, get up and go play the game. Then you leave right afterward. So you dont really have time for anything other than getting the team prepared.His players know just how much their coach would enjoy winning at The Big House.Obviously coach Durkin would love a huge win from us, being that this is the school he came from and being that its the No. 2 team in country, Braglio said. Its a great setup for us, to come out there as an underdog.After losing at Penn State and Indiana, the Terrapins remain winless on the road in the Big Ten. They hope to turn it around against Michigan, which has tallied at least 40 points in six of eight games and is coming off a 31-23 win at Michigan State.Weve got to find a way to get a win on the road in our conference, Durkin said. Thats something were talking about as a team. Its the next step.This is the first of three consecutive games for Maryland against highly ranked teams.
