Torii Hunter hit his second homer in as many games against the Indians (10-9), as the Los Angeles Angels held on to win 2-1 Saturday afternoon at Progressive Field. The victory ended a five-game losing streak for the Angels (7-14).

The game was delayed for over two hours to start the afternoon, with first pitch moved back to around 3:30 p.m. From there, LA took an early lead on a Kendry Morales RBI single. Hunter then provided for an early 2-0 advantage with his solo blast in the fourth. The Indians netted their lone run in the fourth predictably on an RBI single from Jack Hannahan. That’d be all the scoring for the night, as this has truly been an pitcher-dominated series so far.

Indians starter Jeanmar Gomez settled down after the early runs, earning a quality start with a career-high seven strikeouts in six innings of work. The Tribe hardly managed to do much at all against Angels starter Dan Haren, who dominated for eight innings before Scott Downs came in for his first save.
