Stubbs’ HR powers Indians past Angels 4-1 in 14th

ANAHEIM, Calif. – Drew Stubbs hit a two-run homer in the 14th inning, and the Cleveland Indians outlasted the Los Angeles Angels 4-1 Tuesday night to gain ground in the AL playoff race.

Lonnie Chisenhall got the Indians going with a one-out single in the 14th off Joe Blanton (2-14), the Angels’ seventh pitcher. Stubbs, the Indians’ No. 9 hitter, was 0 for 4 with a walk before connecting for his first homer since July 4.

Michael Bourn then singled and scored from second on Blanton’s throwing error for the Angels, who have lost eight of 10. Los Angeles stranded 17 runners – 13 after the sixth inning, including two in the final frame.

Carlos Santana hit a tying homer in the seventh for the Indians, who managed just four hits in the first 12 innings.
