Lindor, Santana combine for 3 HR, 6 RBI in Indians 8-3 win over Angels
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Francisco Lindor homered and drove in three runs in the first two innings, and the Cleveland Indians pounded another Angels starter in an 8-3 victory over Los Angeles on Sunday.
Carlos Santana hit two homers and drove in three more runs for the AL Central leaders, who took two of three at the Big A.
Mike Trout left the game in the eighth inning with a bruised right thumb after getting hit by a pitch from Cleveland reliever Tommy Hunter. X-rays showed no broken bones for the 2014 AL MVP.
Lindor's three hits included a solo shot in the first and a bases-loaded single during Cleveland's four-run second, chasing David Huff (0-2).
Danny Salazar (7-3) pitched three-hit ball into the sixth with eight strikeouts, earning his third victory in four starts.
