The losing streak has reached nine, though this one had some serious style points.

The Indians against all odds prevented a leadoff triple from ending the game in the bottom of the ninth by intentionally walking Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder to load the bases following a strikeout of Omar Infante by Josh Tomlin. A 3-2-3 double play sent the game into extras, where Travis Hafner and Ezequiel Carrera gave the Indians a lead with back to back homers. Chris Perez, however, blew only his third save of the season in tremendous fashion with the capper being a walkoff two-run homer in the bottom of the tenth by Miguel Cabrera to give the Tigers the sweep. The Tribe ends the roadtrip 0-9 and heads back home to face the Twins tomorrow night.

Get your popcorn ready and watch your Twitter timeline, folks.
