Jackson works the count full to 3-2.
Austin Jackson draws the one out walk, as he has reached base 4 times tonight.
Huge swing there by Quintin Berry on the 0-1 pitch, swings and misses and it's now 0-2.
Austin Jackson got a running start on the play, as the ball is lined right to a diving play to Kipnis, but it kicks off his glove.
That advances Jackson up to third base, and puts runners on the corners for the Tigers. And that will knock Zach McAllister out of the game.
Pitching change for the Indians here: Manny Acta brings in his right-handed reliever Joe Smith.
Over his last 22 games, Joe Smith has allowed just 6 earned runs.
All Joe Smith needs is a single pitch, as Miguel Cabrera grounds into the double play and the Tigers strand a couple runners to end the 7th. We go to the stretch!
Coming up for the Indians in the home half: Santana, Hafner and Lopez.
The Indians have tallied just 3 hits tonight against Justin Verlander, and the 5-9 hitters have combined to go 0-9.
The Tribe still has some life in them yet, as Carlos Santana goes yard to right field with a HUGE home run. Make that just 3-2 Tigers.
It's back-to-back jacks! Travis Hafner also goes deep on the first pitch from Justin Verlander.
After Verlander held the Indians to just 3 hits combined through the first 6 innings, the Tribe has come to life with back to back solo home runs. We're all tied at 3-3.
Now, we have a ball game folks!
Make that three straight hits for Cleveland, as Jose Lopez pokes a single into right field. Still nobody out, as Jim Leyland is stirring in the dugout.
1-1 count on Casey Kotchman, runner at first base for the Indians and nobody out.
Casey Kotchman is the first out of the Tribe's 7th inning, he flies out to centre field. One away, and a runner still on first base.
The number 9 hitter Shelley Duncan hits one to deep left field, but not quite deep enough. It's caught before the warning track, and now two men out.
Verlander comes in with the fastball to Choo, he swings and misses and he's behind now 1-2.
The Tribe isn't done yet! They get another hit off Verlander this inning, make that four in the 7th alone. Prior to that, Verlander gave up 3 the entire game.
Runners on first and second base with two men out for Asdrubal Cabrera.
The Tribe takes the lead! Asdrubal Cabrera hits a single into right field, that scores a run to put Cleveland out in front 4-3.
That moves the runners up to second and third base on the play, and there are still two men out.
Santiago tries to make a leaping catch, and the ball bounces off his glove! That gives the Tribe new life as another run scores on the error. Cleveland adds a run, and it's now 5-3 tribe.
Cleveland scores an unprecedented 4 runs off Justin Verlander in the 7th inning, and they still aren't done yet.
Make that 6 hits surrendered by Justin Verlander in this inning alone.
And the nightmare finally ends for Justin Verlander, as he gets Michael Brantley to pop up to end the 7th inning. That after the Tribe sends 9 men to the plate in the 7th inning.
With a slim 2-run lead, it's going to be a battle of the bullpens now. And in that case, I'd give the slim lead to the Indians.
However, over the last 61 games the Tigers bullpen has combined to post a 2.52 ERA and have held opponents to a .233 batting average.
@James I know this might seem like a silly answer, but it's Justin Verlander. If you can't trust him to get out of that jam, who CAN you trust?
Pitching change for the Indians: it's setup man Vinnie Pestano in from the bullpen.
Pestano has allowed just a single run in 20 appearances dating back to June 1st.
One the 2-2 pitch, Prince Fielder hits a high fly ball to medium depth centre field. Michael Brantley is parked under it, one away.
@Mike I believe Joe Smith is.
@Minor_Leaguer Yes, it was an odd sight. And yes, those were unusually tight pants.
Pestano with a 3-0 count on Delmon Young, in danger of putting a man on base with a free pass.
Pestano comes in with a called strike, then Young fouls off the next pitch and it's now 3-2.
