By STEVE HERRICK
CLEVELAND (AP) --- Trevor Bauer pitched a season-high eight innings, Francisco
Lindor singled to break a tie in the seventh and the Cleveland Indians won
their seventh straight game Thursday with a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles
Cleveland is on its longest winning streak of the season and is a season-high
10 games over .500. The Indians completed a 7-0 homestand.
Bauer (9-8) is 4-0 in five career starts against the Angels. He struck out six
and allowed seven hits. Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his 18th save. JC
Ramirez (9-9) took the loss.
Bauer worked out of a jam in the seventh that began with runners on second and
third and no out. Lindor's two-out single off Ramirez scored Brandon Guyer, who
drew a leadoff walk. Guyer moved to second on a sacrifice in the seventh. After
pinch-hitter Austin Jackson walked, Bradley Zimmer struck out, but Lindor lined
a 1-2 pitch to right for the lead.
