CLEVE­LAND — Jose Ramirez went 4-for-4 with a pair of three-run homers and Tigers ace Justin Ver­lan­der matched a ca­reer high by al­low­ing nine runs Saturday in a 13-6 loss to the In­di­ans.

Ramirez had a ca­reer-high six RBIs with home runs in the first off Ver­lan­der and the eighth against Ani­bal Sanchez. The switch hit­ter also sin­gled in the third and fifth.

Ver­lan­der (1-1) gave up 11 hits in four-plus in­nings, in­clud­ing home runs by Car­los San­tana and Lon­nie Chisen­hall. The 2011 AL Cy Young Award win­ner and MVP also sur­ren­dered nine runs against the White Sox in 2008 and the Rangers in 2014.

The de­feat stopped a 20-start streak in which Ver­lan­der had al­lowed three or fewer runs dat­ing back to June 26, when the In­di­ans scored eight runs off him in 42⁄3 in­nings.

Ver­lan­der fell to 19-22 against the In­di­ans, the most losses he has against any team in his ca­reer, and is 9-15 at Pro­gres­sive Field.

San­tana had three of the In­di­ans’ 19 hits and four RBIs, with his two-run homer com­ing in the sec­ond. Chisen­hall added his two-run drive in the third for the In­di­ans, who had lost six of seven. San­tana drove in two more runs with a fifth-in­ning sin­gle off Shane Greene, but both runs were charged to Ver­lan­der. San­tana is 16-for-70 in his ca­reer against Ver­lan­der but has eight home runs and 15 RBIs. The eight homers are the most Ver­lan­der has yielded to any op­po­nent.

In a matchup of aces, Corey Klu­ber (1-1) struck out eight in 6 ⁄ in­nings, al­low­ing six runs on 1

3 eight hits. Ver­lan­der fin­ished sec­ond to the Red Sox’s Rick Por­cello in last year’s AL Cy Young vot­ing, with Klu­ber third.

Justin Up­ton hit a two-run homer for the Tigers. 1935: Babe Ruth, 40, made a sen­sa­tional Na­tional League de­but in Bos­ton. His sin­gle and homer led the Braves over the Gi­ants 4-2. 1940: The In­di­ans’ Bob Feller beat the White Sox 1-0 in the only open­ing day no­hit­ter in ma­jor league his­tory. 2014: Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda pitched the Yan­kees to a 3-0, 2-0 sweep of the Cubs in a chilly day-night­dou­ble­header. The Yan­kees had not won by shutout twice in one day since April 9, 1987. No team in the ma­jor leagues had done it since the Twins swept the Ath­let­ics on June 26, 1988. ST.
