DETROIT (AP) — Victor Martinez drove in three runs, taking advantage after Cleveland pitched around Miguel Cabrera and helping Alfredo Simon and the Detroit Tigers beat the Indians 4-1 Saturday.

Cabrera drew four walks in a game for the first time in his career, three of them intentional. Earlier this season, the two-time AL MVP went 11 for 14 with six RBIs in a three-game series at Cleveland.

With Cabrera batting third, Martinez was in position to do damage hitting cleanup.

Simon (4-0) gave up one run in 6 2/3 innings. Joakim Soria pitched a perfect ninth for his sixth save.

Ian Kinsler drove in the other run for the Tigers and Rajai Davis stole three bases.

Michael Brantley had four hits, including a pair of doubles, and drove in Cleveland’s run.

T.J. House (0-3) gave up three runs in three innings. He started in place of Trevor Bauer, who was scratched because of an illness.
