Lowe, Indians blank Angels

CLEVELAND (AP) ― Derek Lowe never saw the key play that helped him and the Cleveland Indians win the game.

Lowe pitched three-hit ball into the eighth inning and the Indians scored three runs on errors to beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-0 Sunday. Two scored on an error by nine-time Gold Glove outfielder Torii Hunter.

“I’ve never played the outfield, but I probably would do that myself,” Lowe said after Hunter lost a routine fly ball in the sun, allowing Cleveland to go ahead 2-0 in the fifth inning.

“The mighty sun was on our side today,” manager Manny Acta said after Cleveland took two of three from the slumping Angels to claim sole possession of the AL Central lead.
