DETROIT — Jerry Sands homered, tripled and scored twice and Josh Tomlin pitched a four-hitter as the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 8-1 Friday night.

The Indians have won 10 of 14 as they try to stay in the American League wild-card race. Detroit has lost seven of eight and been outscored 71-21 in that stretch.

Tomlin (4-1) was moved up a day after scheduled starter Corey Kluber couldn’t overcome a hamstring strain sustained in a bullpen session earlier in the week. He allowed one run on four hits and a walk while striking out five. His last complete game was June 28, 2014 in Seattle.

Kyle Lobstein (3-6), who had been sidelined since May 23 with a shoulder injury, allowed six runs on eight hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings.
