Indians closer Chris Perez was not available for Monday's series opener against the Tigers after leaving the team to be with his wife for the birth of his child.
On Tuesday Perez mowed down all three Tigers he faced on Tuesday en route to his 34th save of the season.
Perez came out of the gate firing, fanning Prince Fielder and Brennan Boesch before getting Delmon Young on a weak ground ball. After consecutive blown saves at the beginning of August, Perez has responded by converting five consecutive chances for the fading Tribe.
