DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera's towering fly was headed toward left-center, and at first the Detroit slugger couldn't tell if it would clear the fence.
When it did, the Tigers celebrated perhaps the most spectacular comeback of the season.
Cabrera hit a two-run homer to cap a stunning five-run rally with two outs in the 10th inning, giving the Tigers a 10-8 victory over the Indians on Sunday. Cleveland has lost nine straight.
With nobody on and the Indians up 8-5, Chris Perez walked Alex Avila and pinch-hitter Andy Dirks. Austin Jackson doubled in a run, and Omar Infante's two-run single tied it.
Cabrera followed with his drive. "It was a little scary," he said. "It was high. I was not sure if I hit it out. I'm glad."
It's the first time all season a team has trailed by at least three with two outs and nobody on in its last at-bat and won in that inning.
