CLEVELAND — Edwin Jackson pitched seven shutout innings and remained unbeaten against Cleveland this season, and the first-place Tigers kept their slender AL Central lead over Minnesota with a 3-1 win over the Indians, who dropped their ninth in a row Tuesday night.

In losing nine of 13, the Tigers let a seven-game lead on Sept. 6 slip to two over the Twins last weekend. But with their second straight win, they stayed 2 1/2 games ahead of Minnesota, which defeated Chicago.
