The Los Angeles Angels can't seem to find an end to their woes. For the second time in as many days, they allowed a walk-off win against them in enemy territory, this time dropping a 3-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians in the bottom of the ninth inning. Their losing streak now extends to five games.
The offense was one again nearly nonexistent, with the Angels managing just four hits in the game. Two of those hits came from Torii Hunter, who drove in both Halos runs. The first came in the first inning, when Albert Pujols singled (his only hit of the game) and later scored on a Hunter single. In the fourth inning, the Angels went up 2-0 on Hunter's first home run of the year, a two-out shot to right field.
Angels ace Jered Weaver departed after six innings, having allowed no runs, seven hits and four walks, while picking up eight strikeouts. The bullpen once again let down a solid outing from a starter, as in the bottom of the seventh inning, reliever Hisanori Takahashi allowed an RBI double and Kevin Jepsen came in to allow the tying single that brought the score to 2-2.
In the bottom of the ninth inning, David Carpenter allowed a leadoff double and a one-out single that put runners on the corners. On the next batter, Asdrubal Cabrera knocked in the winning run for the Indians win.
