Curtis Granderson homered and Placido Polanco hit a key two-run single as the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 5-2 on Sunday.

Armando Galarraga (5-2) picked up the win, allowing two runs in 5 2-3 innings. Todd Jones pitching the ninth for his 10th save.

Jeremy Sowers (0-1) took the loss, giving up five runs on seven hits and two walks in four innings.

Galarraga made eight starts while Dontrelle Willis was injured, and has now moved back into the rotation after Jeremy Bonderman was lost for the season with a blood clot in his pitching shoulder.

After scoring six times in the eighth inning of Saturday's come-from-behind win, the Tigers scored five runs in the first four innings Sunday.

Detroit went up 1-0 on Miguel Cabrera's RBI single in the first, and Granderson made it 2-0 with his eighth homer in the second. Granderson was making a rare start against a lefty _ he hadn't homered off a left-hander since July 23.

Cleveland made it 2-1 on an RBI single by Grady Sizemore in the third, but the Tigers took control with three in the fourth.

Carlos Guillen led off with a double and scored on Ivan Rodriguez's single. After a walk, Sowers retired the next two, but Polanco hit a two-run single.

Ryan Garko made it 5-2 with an RBI single in the sixth, but Jhonny Peralta grounded out and Casey Fossum came out of the bullpen to get the final out.

The Indians loaded the bases off Zach Miner in the eighth, but Freddy Dolsi struck out Peralta and Ben Francisco to end the threat.
