Indians Vs. Angels: Cleveland Bats Stay Hot In 12-3 Win

The Cleveland Indians supplied some early fireworks on the Fourth of July with a 12-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Cleveland scored nine runs in the first two innings and never looked back.

The scoring got started in the first with a three-run home run from Michael Brantley. The Indians then scored six runs in the second inning, capped off by a three-run home run by Casey Kotchman.

Angels starter Ervin Santana failed to make it out of the second inning, giving up eight runs over one-and-one-third innings pitched.

Picking up the win for the Indians was Derek Lowe, who improved to 8-6. He gave up 11 hits three runs over six innings before giving way to the bullpen.

After taking two of three games from the Angels, the Indians will host the Tampa Bay Rays for a four-game series before they hit the All-Star break.
