Indians Vs. Angels Final Score: Cleveland Pitcher Derek Lowe Phenomenal In 4-0 Shutout Win

The Cleveland Indians came away with a key series win over a sinking Los Angeles Angels squad on Sunday, as starter Derek Lowe paved the way to a 4-0 victory with an abundance of ground ball outs.

Lowe, who continues to impress now that he's back in the American League, tossed 107 pitches over 7.2 shutout innings, allowing just three hits and two walks. He lowered his season ERA to 2.27 with the performance, and looks like a drastically different pitcher than the one who lost 17 times and posted a 5.05 ERA just last year with the Braves.

Angels newcomer Albert Pujols finished the game 0-for-4 from the plate to drop his season average to .216, as Los Angeles hitters could only muster three hits all afternoon. The Indians used an error by LA outfielder Torii Hunter to plate a pair of unearned runs in the fifth inning, and added two more in the eighth after a separate error with the bases loaded extended the inning.

Now 11-9 on the year, the Indians have a three-game series with the Chicago White Sox on the road starting on Tuesday, before a three-game weekend series with the Texas Rangers.
