CLEVELAND  — Corey Kluber pitched a five-hit shutout and the Cleveland Indians used a four-run fourth inning to defeat the Detroit Tigers for the fifth straight time this season, 4-0 on Wednesday night.

Kluber (2-3) worked out of jams in the second and fourth to beat Detroit for the second time in two weeks. The right-hander, who won the AL Cy Young Award in 2014, struck out seven and walked two in his second career shutout and eighth complete game.

Anibal Sanchez (3-3) didn’t allow a hit through three innings, but gave up four runs on three hits, a walk, a hit batter and a wild pitch in the fourth.

Michael Brantley’s RBI single and Mike Napoli’s run-scoring double gave Cleveland a 2-0 lead. Another run scored on Sanchez’s wild pitch before Yan Gomes’ double capped the scoring.
