Branyan and Choo HRs help Indians beat Tigers 3-2

Russell Branyan and Shin-Soo Choo hit homers, lifting the Cleveland Indians to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night. Jake Westbrook (3-3) gave up a run on five hits and a walk over 7 2-3 innings. Chris Perez stranded two runners in the eighth by getting Magglio Ordonez to pop up. Kerry Wood gave up an unearned run on Alex Avila's RBI single after Branyan's two-out error, letting the Tigers pull within a run before earning his third save in four chances. Jeremy Bonderman (2-3) didn't allow a run until Branyan hit a solo home run in the fifth. Choo followed with a solo shot the next inning. Mark Grudzielanek's RBI single in the eighth gave Cleveland a two-run cushion it needed. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
