Halos hammer Tribe

Monday saw two baseball teams going in different directions. With the Angels’ 10-5 victory over the Tribe, it marks their seventh consecutive win. As the Angles are soarding, the Indians are falling fast. They have now lost four in a row. Jake Westbrook pitched one of his worst starts of the season, giving up five earned runs and 12 hits in 3 2/3 innings. Travis Hafner and Jason Michaels both homered for the Tribe, who fall 10 games below .500 for the first time this season. Garret Anderson and Orlando Cabrera each had two-run home runs and third baseman Maicer Izturis had four of the Angels’ 17 hits on the night. The Tribe were able to get to rookie pitcher Dustin Moseley early, but were unable to keep the Angels off the scoreboard. Once again, they had ample opportunities to add runs but couldn’t execute with runners in scoring position.
