Santana's homer lifts Tribe past Angels

Posted: Updated:

Carlos Santana and Asdrubal Cabrera slugged home runs to lead the Tribe to a 4-3 win at Progressive Field over the Los Angeles Angels.

Cabrera's homer, a two run shot in the first, put them up 2-0 early. But, singles by David Freese and Kendrick opened the second along with Chris Iannetta tying the game with a two-run double in the second.

Santana's leadoff homer in the fifth inning broke a 3-all tie and moved the Indians (36-35) over the .500 mark.

Both of the home run's were off Jered Weaver, who lost for the first time in 10 career starts at the Indians' ballpark. 

Trevor Bauer allowed three runs 6 2/3 innings for his very first since May. Carlos Carrasco pitched 2 1/3 innings for his very first career save. 

Indians left fielder Michael Brantley left the game in the fifth inning after getting struck in the face sliding into second base. It was feared he had a concussion, but he passed all of the tests after the game. He will be looked over again on Tuesday.

The Angels have lost four of five since winning five straight.

Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving took batting practice with the Indians and threw out the first pitch.
