Derek Lowe and a pair of Tribe relievers combined for a three-hit shutout as the slumping Los Angeles Angels continued their offensive woes on Sunday afternoon, losing 4-0 at Progressive Field in Cleveland. The loss dropped the Halos to 7-15 on the season, as they have lost six of the seven series they have played.
Kendrys Morales had two of the Angels' three hits, all singles, as the Angels weren't able to put up much of a rally against Lowe, who won his fourth game of the season.
Ervin Santana pitched his best game of the year at the site of his no-hitter last season, allowing just two unearned runs in seven innings, lowering his ERA to 5.58 on the season. But Santana suffered his fifth loss in as many starts. The Indians added a pair of insurance runs off Kevin Jepsen in the bottom of the eighth inning.
Albert Pujols went 0-for-4 and is hitting .216 with no home runs through 22 games.
