CLEVELAND — Center fielder Michael Bourn called it one of the toughest losses of the season. He was asked how he and the rest of the Indians would recover.

“The only thing you can do is go to sleep, wake up and it’s a new day,” Bourn said. “But this one was a tough one. I think it’s one of the toughest ones of the year. We’ll see how we respond and show what kind of team we are.”

The Indians were three outs away from defeating the Detroit Tigers last night in the opener of a big four-game series between the top two teams in the American League Central. They had a 2-0 lead and closer Chris Perez on the mound in the ninth, but the Tigers rallied for four runs, three coming on a homer by Alex Avila, for a 4-2 victory in front of 24,381 at Progressive Field.
