Tigers Sweep Tribe. Magic Number To Clinch Division Now 12

September 7, 2011

Victor Martinez socked a seventh inning grand slam Wednesday to help the Tigers to an 8-6 win at Cleveland and a sweep of the three game series with the Indians.

Martinez's blast allowed Justin Verlander to post his 22nd win on a day when he was not as sharp as usual.

The win moved the Tigers nine games in front of second place Chicago in the American League Central and cut their magic number to clinch the division title to twelve.
