Tigers 4, Indians 1
DETROIT — Jose Alvarez pitched six impressive innings in his major-league debut, making the most of a one-day audition with the Tigers. Alvarez, called up to start when Anibal Sanchez's shoulder acted up, was sent back to the minors, but not before he impressed his manager, his teammates and a sellout crowd of 41,262. "You certainly had to like his demeanor and his mound presence. I thought it was terrific," manager Jim Leyland said.
