Kipnis’ 1st MLB Hit Sinks Angels


CLEVELAND (AP) — Jason Kipnis delivered his first career hit with the bases loaded and two outs in the ninth inning to give the Cleveland Indians a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.


Kipnis hit a 1-0 pitch from Hisanori Takahashi between first and second base to give the Indians their 11th home win in their last at-bat and break a four-game losing streak.


Tony Sipp (5-2) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win after Bobby Abreu’s two-run homer off Vinnie Pestano put the Angels ahead 2-1 in the eighth.


Angels closer Jordan Walden blew his seventh save in 30 tries.
