Tigers beat up Indians 12-6 day after blown call

By AP

DETROIT – Magglio Ordonez and Miguel Cabrera hit consecutive homers in a five-run seventh inning to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 12-6 win over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday, a day
after a blown call cost Armando Galarraga a perfect game.

The Tigers were still sad first base umpire Jim Joyce made a mistake to negate the first perfecto in franchise history and probably weren't pleased that Major League Baseball let the call stand. But they moved on.

Brad Thomas (2-0) retired two in the sixth inning for the win. Hector Abriz (0-1) gave up a run on two hits in an inning.

Cleveland's David Huff gave up five runs over three innings, pitching for the first time since New York's Alex Rodriguez hit a line drive off his head on Saturday.
