Angels Vs. Indians Final Score: Angels Take The Series With 8-4 Win

After dropping the first game of the series to the Indians, the Angels won their second straight game Wednesday night and in doing so took the series from Cleveland 2-1.

The Angels exploded for five runs in the second inning which turned out to be more than enough for Ervin Santana. Santana allowed just one run on four hits over seven strong innings. He walked one while striking out four to pickup his sixth win of the season. Santana got off to a rough start this season, but the Angels have now won the last four games he started.

Los Angeles would go on to tack on three more runs, including one on a fourth inning home run by Mike Trout, en route to the 8-4 win. The home run was Trout's 22nd of the season. Chris Iannetta hit his sixth home run of the season and drove in two runs while Kendrys Morales finished with three hits.

After falling behind 7-0, the Indians added one run in the sixth inning, then three more in the eighth on a Shin-Soo Choo three run homerun off Jason Isringhausen.

With the win, the Angels gained ground on both the Athletics and Rangers and are now tied with Oakland for second place in the AL West, six games behind Texas. The Angels now begin an important four-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays, beginning Wednesday night at Angel Stadium.
