Kendrick’s 2-run single helps Angels beat Indians

ANAHEIM, Calif. – Howie Kendrick had a two-run single in his first game in the leadoff spot this season, Chris Iannetta hit a pair of RBI singles and the Los Angeles Angels beat Cleveland 6-4 Tuesday night, sending the Indians to their fifth straight loss.

Jered Weaver (2-2) allowed two runs and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings, striking out six and walking one. The Angels’ ace threw 90 pitches and was lifted after giving up four consecutive hits, including a two-run homer by Carlos Santana.

Joe Smith, the seventh Angels pitcher, tossed a perfect ninth for his second save in two nights against his former teammates after he was thrust into the closer’s role last Friday in place of an ineffective Ernesto Frieri.

Corey Kluber (2-3) gave up four runs – three earned – and four hits over 4 2-3 innings with five strikeouts and four walks.
