CLEVELAND– Yoenis Cespedes drove in three runs, Miguel Cabrera reached base four times and the Detroit Tigers continued to push Cleveland around, beating the Indians 8-5 on Monday night.

Cespedes hit an RBI double off Trevor Bauer (6-4) in the first inning, homered in the third and added a sacrifice fly in Detroit’s four-run fourth as the Tigers improved to 8-2 against the Indians this season and 34-14 since the start of 2013.

Detroit has won 15 of the last 18 against Cleveland.

Cabrera walked twice, once with the bases loaded, singled twice and remained a mystery to Cleveland pitchers. He’s batting .649 (24 of 37) with five homers and 16 RBIs against the Indians this year.

Victor Martinez followed the fourth-inning walk to Cabrera with a two-run single to make it 6-3.

Blaine Hardy (3-1) replaced starter Kyle Ryan in the fourth and pitched 2 1-3 hitless innings.
