CLEVELAND (AP) — David Price allowed one run in 6 2-3 innings and Detroit scored six times in the fifth to continue its dominance over the Cleveland Indians with a 7-3 win on Tuesday night.

The Tigers are 9-2 against the Indians and have won all five games at Progressive Field this season. Detroit is 20-5 in Cleveland over the past three seasons.

Price (7-2) scattered nine hits and struck out seven. The left-hander is 9-1 in his last 11 starts against Cleveland, including a shutout at Comerica Park on June 12.

Miguel Cabrera was 2 for 5 and is hitting .619 (26 for 42) with five homers and 16 RBIs in the season series. He’s 15 for 22 in five games in Cleveland.

Ironically, Cabrera’s weak tapper with the bases loaded in the fifth helped turn the game in Detroit’s favor. Danny Salazar (6-3) committed an error on the apparent inning-ending double play grounder that broke a 1-all tie.
