The Indians won their fourth straight, seventh of nine overall and nine of their last 11 at home with an 8-3 victory over the Angels on Saturday night.
Cleveland scored five in the eighth before former Indians reliever Joe Smith recorded an out. Francisco Lindor singled, Michael Brantley singled and Carlos Santana doubled home Lindor
before Lonnie Chisenhall was intentionally walked and Yan Gomes hit his first career Grand Slam
The Indians tied the game on a Gomes sac fly in the second, and took a 3-1 lead in the third – after the rain delay – on Chisenhall’s two-run single. The Angels, though, re-tied it in the fourth before the Tribe’s eighth-inning rally.
