DETROIT - With Justin Masterson on the mound against a Detroit rookie making his big league debut, this seemed like a good chance for the Cleveland Indians to avoid a sweep. Doug Fister Astros Jersey . Instead, they lost their seventh game in a row, sliding further behind the Tigers in the AL Central standings. Jose Alvarez pitched six impressive innings in his major league debut, and Don Kelly hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the sixth to help the Tigers to a 4-1 victory over the Indians on Sunday. The three-game sweep gave first-place Detroit a 5 1/2-game lead in the division over Cleveland. "Its a long season. We cant worry about it," said Ryan Raburn, who homered to drive in Clevelands only run. "Were playing as hard as we can. Just not catching any breaks." Alvarez (1-0) was starting because of Anibal Sanchezs shoulder tightness, and he held Cleveland hitless until Raburns fifth-inning homer. The 24-year-old left-hander allowed three hits and a walk and struck out seven. "He pitched a great game," Masterson said. "Especially for his major league debut. ... Kept us off balance." Drew Smyly pitched two innings of relief. Joaquin Benoit finished for his third save. Masterson (8-5) allowed four runs in seven innings. He gave up a walk to Miguel Cabrera and a single to Prince Fielder to start the Detroit sixth. One out later, Kelly lifted a drive over the wall in right field. "I dont even think it was a mistake," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "Just trying to change the eye level, got it down and in. Actually, it wasnt a strike and it got in his swing path. ... Give Kelly credit — a tough pitch to hit." The Tigers have built their division lead behind terrific starting pitching. Sanchez has been perhaps their best pitcher so far, but Detroit skipped the right-handers start Sunday because of tightness in the back of his throwing shoulder. Enter Alvarez, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Toledo before the game. He baffled the Indians during the early innings, allowing only a leadoff walk to Mark Reynolds in the second before Raburn — the former Tiger — tied the game at 1 with his seventh homer of the season. The left-handed hitting Kelly brought a .190 average into the game, but Detroit manager Jim Leyland started him against Masterson, who is tough on righties. The move paid off with Kellys third homer of the year, which gave the Tigers a 4-1 lead. "It was a slider down and in, and I was able to put a good swing on it," Kelly said. "I didnt know right away if I got it or not." Detroits bullpen was a bit taxed — and a man short because the Tigers had to add an extra starter for this game. They were able to wrap up this win with Smyly and Benoit while resting closer Jose Valverde. Detroits Alex Avila opened the scoring with a sacrifice fly in the second. Masterson allowed six hits. He walked three and struck out four. NOTES: Indians closer Chris Perez (sore right shoulder) is expected to throw off a mound Tuesday. Perez and his wife were charged in a complaint filed Friday with misdemeanour drug possession involving just over one-third of a pound of marijuana, police in Ohio said. Their attorney said they would plead not guilty. ... It began raining in the ninth inning, sending many fans back toward the concourse level while Benoit finished the game. ... Clevelands Nick Swisher singled in the sixth to snap an 0-for-26 slide. ... Cleveland starts a three-game set at Texas on Monday night. Scott Kazmir (3-3) will start for the Indians. Detroit opens a three-game series at Kansas City. Doug Fister (5-3) takes the mound for the Tigers against Jeremy Guthrie (6-3) in the opener. Scott Feldman Astros Jersey .
