The Indians won their fourth straight, seventh of nine overall and nine of their last 11 at home with an 8-3 victory over the Angels on Saturday night.

Cleveland scored five in the eighth before former Indians reliever Joe Smith recorded an out:

  • Francisco Lindor singled
  • Michael Brantley singled
  • Carlos Santana doubled home Lindor
  • Lonnie Chisenhall was intentionally walked
  • Yan Gomes hit his first career Grand Slam

The Indians tied the game on a Gomes sac fly in the second, and took a 3-1 lead in the third – after the rain delay – on Chisenhall’s two-run single. The Angels, though, re-tied it in the fourth before the Tribe’s eighth-inning rally.

Streaks

  • Chisenhall extended his hit streak 10 games, in which he’s hitting .483 (14-29)
    • Since his callup on July 30, Chisenhall is hitting .408 (29-71)
  • Lindor extended his hit streak to eight games, in which he’s hitting .516 (16-31)
    • In August, Lindor is hitting .386 (39-101)
