DETROIT (AP) -- Jim Leyland loaded the lineup with lefties against Justin Masterson, then watched his Detroit Tigers struggle to another loss.
Afterward, there wasn't a hint of panic in his voice.
"I'm not frustrated," Leyland said. "I'm not going to change. We've been the same all year. We come here ready to do our job and do our best."
Don't expect a lot of theatrics from the veteran manager over these final pressure-packed weeks of the regular season -- no matter how exasperating things look on the field.
Masterson pitched six solid innings Tuesday night, and the Cleveland Indians beat Detroit 3-2 for their second straight victory over the playoff-chasing Tigers.
After being swept three straight by Kansas City, Detroit turned around and took three in a row from Chicago to pull even with the White Sox atop the AL Central. Now the Tigers have lost two straight to a Cleveland team that dropped 29 of 35 before this series.
Detroit's last six losses have been by one run.
