Cabrera, Tigers edge Cleveland, 5-4 in extras
Pick your poison. Deadlocked in a 4-4 tie in the tenth inning with a runner on second, Indians manager Terry Francona decided for Cody Allen to pitch to baseball's best hitter with first base open.

That's exactly what led to the Tigers 5-4 victory over the Tribe Saturday night. Join IBI Tribe beat reporter Jim Berdysz as he recaps the game from a sold out Progressive Field.
