Lindor lifts Indians to sweep of Angels

Lindor lifts Indians to sweep of Angels”

Francisco Lindor hit a three-run homer and walked Thursday as the Indians topped the Angels 4-1.

The Indians started right-hander Danny Salazar on Thursday, largely in an effort to see if he can be a viable postseason reliever.

The loss was the fourth in five games for the Angels, who remained 1½ games behind the Twins.

After taking a called first-pitch strike, designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion smashed a slider from Angels starter Parker Bridwell over the wall and into the seats in left field for Cleveland's first run of the game, which evened the score at 1-1 in the top of the second inning. He walked two and struck out six.

Los Angeles' magic number to clinch the National League West is one. Each hit was a solo home run.

PHILADELPHIA - Andre Ethier hit a pinch-hit homer in the seventh inning and Cody Bellinger added an RBI groundout in the same frame off Philadelphia's bullpen and Los Angeles held on to snap a four-game losing streak. But the inning was set up by a couple of balls that hit the gloves of Angel defenders before falling in for hits. Center fielder Trout, second baseman Brandon Phillips and right fielder Kole Calhoun converged, with Calhoun trying to make the catch but the ball bounced off the heel of his glove and fell in.

After Erik Gonzalez hit into a force play on a failed sacrifice attempt, Lindor made sure it didn't matter, crushing a 91-mph fastball from Bridwell over the fence in center. Tyler Olson threw a scoreless ninth for his first career save.
