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. -- associated press

Elin Nordegren and Lindsey Vonn are reportedly becoming good friends - a scenario that's no doubt making life easier for golfer Tiger Woods, who had a spectacular marriage meltdown with the former and has been dating the latter for a while now.  "You'd think it would be weird, but Elin loves Lindsey and they talk all the time," a source told Us Weekly . "Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman. "  Apparently, the whole gang went on a vacation recently, with the 29-year-old skier and the 34-year-old mother of two taking off together on occasion to get drinks, according to the mag. Daddy Tiger was left to care for daughter Sam, 6, and son Charlie, 5.  "Elin found that they are very similar and have a lot in common," the source said.

KEY MOMENT: The Angels made three errors - on one first-inning play - to give Detroit a run. Ian Kinsler took off from first base on a full-count pitch that Miguel Cabrera took for ball four. Catcher Hank Conger, thinking it was strike three, tried to gun down Kinsler, but his throw sailed into center field, allowing Kinsler to take third base. Center fielder Mike Trout's throw went over second and bounced behind the mound for error No. 2, allowing Kinsler to score. Pitcher Hector Santiago retrieved Trout's throw and fired wildly past the plate as Kinsler scored, Cabrera taking second on error No. 3. AT THE PLATE: The Angels managed one run and five hits, including Howie Kendrick's two-out run-scoring single in the first inning, in seven innings against Rick Porcello, who entered with a 3-4 record and 8.34 earned-run average in nine starts against the Angels.

DETROIT - The Angels turned to their bullpen to protect a narrow lead Saturday night and the familiar sting of the second half returned. Angels reliever Garrett Richards surrendered two eighth-inning singles before a two-out, two-run double by Jhonny Peralta as the Tigers snapped the Angels' four-game winning streak, 5-3, at Comerica Park. The loss dropped the Angels (66-61) 3 1/2 games behind American League wild-card leaders Tampa Bay and Oakland, while Detroit (68-58) moved back to 2 1/2 games ahead of the Angels.

Tigers 5, Angels 2 KEY MOMENT: With runners on second and third and two outs in the top of the fourth inning, right-hander Max Scherzer struck out Erick Aybar swinging to end the inning and preserve a 3-1 lead. A hit by the Angels shortstop in that situation would have tied and changed the complexion of the game. BOX SCORE: Tigers 5, Angels 2 AT THE PLATE: The Angels managed only four hits, but two were home runs, a shot to right field by J.B. Shuck to lead off the game and a ninth-inning shot to left field that gave Albert Pujols 498. The Angels lead the major leagues with 29 home runs.

DETROIT -- Saturday was not a good day for the Angels, who got a leadoff home run from J.B. Shuck and nothing else against Detroit co-ace Max Scherzer in a 5-2 loss that ended their improbable winning streak over the Tigers at 10 games dating to September 2012. It was not a good day for Angels center fielder Mike Trout, 22, who made history of a different sort with the first four-strikeout game of his career, three against Scherzer and one against closer Joe Nathan. It was not a very good day for the umpires, who missed two calls on the bases.

Angels 11, Detroit Tigers 6 AT THE PLATE: Ian Stewart, a late addition to the lineup when third baseman David Freese was scratched because of right quadriceps tightness, came within a home run of the cycle, hitting a run-scoring triple in the second inning, a double in the fourth and a single in the seventh. Mike Trout doubled twice, drove in two runs and scored twice, as the Angels amassed 10 or more extra-base hits in a game for the second time this week. The Angels also lead the American League with 27 homers.

DETROIT -- An offensive barrage that featured a pair of two-run home runs from Howie Kendrick and a three-run shot from Albert Pujols - career homer No. 497 - was impressive and, it turns out, necessary for the Angels, who made things far too interesting by throwing an incendiary device by the name of Josh Wall into the proceedings Friday night. Far more important in the big picture, though, was the Jered Weaver-like performance the Angels got from their ace, who shook off a trio of shaky starts with a superb six-inning, one-run, three-hit effort in an 11-6 win over the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.

KEY MOMENT: Yasiel Puig had not played since spraining a thumb on a headfirst dive Saturday. But, as the Dodgers loaded the bases with none out in the ninth inning, there was Puig, headed to the on-deck circle and then the plate, as Dodger Stadium went nuts. Puig struck out looking, but the Dodgers scored three runs off Detroit closer Joe Nathan to force extra innings. AT THE PLATE: Carl Crawford had a pair of doubles, Juan Uribe had three singles, and Dee Gordon had two singles.

Josh Beckett was not great. The Dodgers do not need him to be, and that makes for a pretty great situation for the home team. Think about it. What other team could afford to employ a guy making close to $16 million as a fifth starter, with no shortage of experienced understudies behind him? In his first major league start in 11 months, Beckett lasted four innings, gave up five runs and got no decision in the Dodgers' 7-6 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday in 10 innings. He was long gone by the time Victor Martinez roughed up Kenley Jansen again.

Don Mattingly didn't have to come to the ballpark Monday, so the Dodgers manager said he got his hair cut, inflated the tires on his bicycle and, basically, took the evening off. "A lot of nothing," he said with a smile. "It was productive. " That remains to be seen. Because for players accustomed to playing every day over a six-month schedule, the start to the Dodgers' season has been a whole lot of nothing. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 3, Tigers 2 (10) Monday's off day was the third in eight days for the Dodgers, who get two more days off over the next week.

Dodgers 3, Tigers 2 (10 innings) KEY MOMENT: Carl Crawford's 10th-inning double skipped by Detroit left fielder Rajai Davis, allowing Chone Figgins to score the winning run from first base. Figgins opened the inning by drawing a walk. Detroit sent the game into extra innings when the Dodgers chose not to walk Victor Martinez with first base open and the tying run on second base in the ninth and the Tigers first baseman burned them with a two-out run-scoring single against Kenley Jansen.
