Indians clinch AL Central crown with 7-4 win over Tigers

DETROIT (AP) When the Cleveland Indians poured onto the field to celebrate their first division title since 2007, their mounting list of concerns became secondary.

Injuries to Michael Brantley, Carlos Carrasco, Danny Salazar - and now ace Corey Kluber? The Indians have overcome all of it so far, and that's why the AL Central is theirs with about a week to spare.

Cleveland clinched the division championship Monday night, overcoming an injury to Kluber in a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers. Kluber left after four innings with right groin tightness, joining Carrasco and Salazar in a group of talented pitchers dealing with health problems.
