Dazzling Detroit debut
Tribe can't back Carmona
Fausto Carmona gave up only two runs on three hits over eight innings, but the Indians fell to the second-place Tigers in the series opener. Carmona struck out five while not walking a batter, but he surrendered consecutive home runs in the fifth. Jhonny Peralta connected on a homer in the sixth inning, his 18th dinger of the season, but it was Cleveland's lone hit.
