Puig single in 10th lifts contending Indians over Tigers 2-1

CLEVELAND (AP) Yasiel Puig hit an RBI single off the top of the right field wall with two outs in the 10th inning and the Cleveland Indians kept up their playoff push, beating the Detroit Tigers 2-1 Wednesday night.

The Indians entered the day one-half game behind Tampa Bay for the second AL wild-card spot. Cleveland stayed 2 1/2 games behind wild-card leader Oakland.

Cleveland beat the Tigers for the 16th straight time this season, one shy of its franchise record set against Baltimore in 1954. The Indians are 17-1 against the Tigers this year, outscoring them 109-38.
