Seven.

The losing streak that has sent the Indians from above-.500 and in the hunt after taking two of three from these Tigers last time has now reached seven games. Justin Masterson got steamrolled again by a potent Detroit offense, as Prince Fielder put the game out of reach with two mighty swings, a two-run double in the third and a two-run homer in the fourth. Ezequiel Carrera had an adventurous debut defensively in left field.  Second base umpire Joe West made a really, really bad call in the top of the first inning that set the negative tone for the rest of the game. The Tribe is now 50-56 as Ubaldo Jimenez takes on Doug Fister tomorrow night.
