Detroit: Max Scherzer did not add to his undefeated win total but the Detroit Tigers found another way to outlast Cleveland 4-2 in 10 innings and increase their lead in American League Central (ALC) on Monday.

Scherzer tossed seven innings, allowed two runs and struck out seven in a no-decision that kept his perfect 13-0 record intact.

The game was knotted at 2-2 from the fourth inning into extras until Victor Martinez hit a two-run double in the top of the 10th to clinch the win.

The victory gave the Tigers (49-39) a third win over the Indians (46-43) in the finale of their four-game series and extended their edge over them to 3 1/2 games in the division. In Miami, the Atlanta Braves came alive with six runs in the 14th inning to claim a 7-1 extra-inning win over the Marlins.

Justin Upton provided the game-tying RBI in the sixth, then sparked the outburst in the 14th with the go-ahead two RBI double.

Gerald Laird added a two-run single and the Braves opened up a five-game lead in the National League East.

In Pittsburgh, Bartolo Colon shut down the Pirates to improve his sparkling record and guide the Oakland Athletics to a 2-1 victory.

Colon surrendered just one run over seven innings as he bumped his mark to 12-3. Pittsburgh’s third straight defeat knocked them out of first place in the NL Central, placing them a half-game behind St. Louis.

In Milwaukee, center fielder Carlos Gomez made a leaping catch above the wall for a spectacular final out that rescued the Brewers in a 4-3 triumph against Cincinnati.

With the Reds trailing by a run and a man on base, Joey Votto sent a drive to deep center for a potential go-ahead home run but Gomez reached the wall and timed his jump to snatch away the blast.
