Indians Beat Angels In Eleven Innings; Winning Run Scores On Error

We'll take 'em any way we can get 'em.

After a miniature version of the marathon that the Indians and Angels played in Anaheim last week, the Tribe found a way to win last night -- with a little help from the Angels.

A botched ground-ball in the Indians' 11th inning off the bat of Shelley Duncan scored Trevor Crowe with the game-winner as Cleveland beat Los Angeles 3-2 in the rubber game of their three-game set, giving the Indians win number 60 for the year.

Fausto Carmona was outstanding again, but left after seven innings in a tie game after surrendering two homers in the seventh, ending his streak of scoreless frames at twenty-two. Rafael Perez was the beneficiary of the Angels' gaffe and got the victory as the Tribe bullpen put together four more scoreless innings.

Here is a complete recap of last night's contest. The Indians go to Kansas City tonight to take on the Royals as the two teams renew their battle to finish fourth in the Central Division with Carlos Carrasco trying again for his first major league victory.
