DETROIT (AP) — Carlos Carrasco allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings, and Jose Ramirez homered twice to lift the Cleveland Indians to a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers.

Cleveland took three of four in this series after entering on an eight-game losing streak, and now the Indians are closing in on a postseason berth.

Ramirez had two multihomer games in the series — he also hit two Thursday night. Matthew Boyd was perfect through four innings for the Tigers, but the Indians scored three runs in the fifth.

Then Ramirez added two-run homers in the sixth and seventh to make it 7-0.
