DETROIT (AP) — Jordan Luplow made a diving catch on Eric Haase’s sinking liner to right field with the bases loaded, preserving a 6-5 victory for the Cleveland Indians over the Detroit Tigers.

Luplow, who entered as a defensive replacement an inning earlier, made the catch look rather easy, but the ninth inning was anything but for closer Emmanuel Clase, who held on for his eighth save in nine chances.

Spencer Turnbull allowed three runs in six innings for Detroit in his first game since pitching a no-hitter last week.
