DETROIT (AP) - Drew Smyly allowed four hits in seven innings and Torii Hunter hit a two-run homer, helping the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 Sunday to avoid a four-game sweep.
    
Smyly (6-8) did not give up a hit until Yan Gomes' two-out double in the fifth. The left-hander allowed one run on Gomes' solo home run in the seventh - and two walks with six strikeouts. Joba Chamberlain walked to in the eighth, and Joe Nathan pitched a perfect ninth in a non-save situation.
    
Josh Tomlin (5-7) allowed four runs, six hits and a walk over 4 1-3 innings.
    
The AL Central-leading Tigers (54-41) stopped a four-game losing streak and increased their lead over Cleveland to 5 1-2 games.
    
Cleveland (50-48) had reached a season-high three games over .500 by winning four in a row.
