Weak hitting Angels drop third game to Indians, 3-1

Yes, that is what a run looks like - Lisa Blumenfeld

The Angels get swept at home by Cleveland, and end their 6-game homestand with just one win.

FINAL SCORE IN ANAHEIM:  Playoff bound Indians 2, Homeward bound Angels 1

In a game where the Angels did almost everything right, they still were unable to avoid a sweep by the suddenly hot Cleveland Indians, and finished their 6-game homestand with just one win.

While the Halos hitters managed to score just one run in their last 22 innings, the pitching and defense did do their job to keep the game close.  Jerome Williams allowed 2 earned runs over 6.1 innings, giving up 6 hits and 2 walks while striking out six.  The only mistake Williams made was leaving a fastball out over the plate to Nick Swisher in the third inning.  Swisher's 2-run blast was all the Indians would need as the the Angels batters were once again unable to get timely hits.

With a Trout-less lineup for the third straight game, the lone Angels' run came on a RBI double off the bat of Hank Conger, scoring Josh Hamilton in the 6th inning.  After stranding 17 runners last night, the most in over 12 years, the Angel hitters left another 8 in Wednesday's late afternoon game.  In the last three games, the punchless Halos have struck out 39 times, while scoring just four runs.
