Escobar Saves Street With Game-Winning RBI In 9th As Angels Top Indians 4-3

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Yunel Escobar lined a game-ending RBI single in the ninth inning after Angels closer Huston Street blew Matt Shoemaker's gem, and Los Angeles beat the Cleveland Indians 4-3 on Saturday night to end a five-game losing streak.

Shoemaker struck out 11 over eight scoreless innings, but Street blew a three-run lead in the top of the ninth.

In the bottom of the inning, Escobar singled off Bryan Shaw (0-2) with one out to score Brendan Ryan, who had reached on a single and advanced on Jett Bandy's sacrifice.

Shoemaker's streak of strikeouts without allowing a walk ended at 49 when he walked Carlos Santana in the seventh on four straight pitches. It was only his second three-ball count of the game, and he finished with one walk and three hits allowed.

Fernando Salas (3-2) replaced Street and got the final out of the ninth.
