CLEVELAND (AP) — Jered Weaver carried a shutout into the eighth inning, squirming out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh, to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 3-0 win over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Weaver (9-1) allowed five singles, struck out two and remained unbeaten in Cleveland. He’s 5-0 with 1.52 ERA in eight career starts at Progressive Field. Scott Downs worked out of a mess in the eighth and pitched the ninth for his seventh save.
The Indians loaded the bases in the seventh off Weaver, who got a force at the plate, foul pop and strikeout to end Cleveland’s best threat.
Howard Kendrick homered in the seventh off Cleveland’s Ubaldo Jimenez (7-7) as the Angels improved to 16-3 on the road since May 22.
