ANAHEIM, California (AP) ― Dan Haren pitched a one-hitter, allowing only Choo Shin-soo’s clean single in the fourth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels beat Cleveland 2-0 Tuesday night to snap the Indians’ eight-game winning streak.
Haren (3-0) struck out eight and walked two in his third major league shutout. Choo’s single to center field came with one out in the fourth.
Peter Bourjos and Mark Trumbo homered for the Angels off Fausto Carmona (0-2). Los Angeles won with just four hits, thanks to Haren.
The Indians’ winning streak was their longest since a 10-game string in August 2008. Cleveland is off to a surprising 8-3 start despite the defeat.
Haren threw 125 pitches in his 12th complete game in 225 career starts. The right-hander was never in trouble and helped himself.
After Orlando Cabrera reached on an error by Angels third baseman Alberto Callaspo, he was caught stealing when he took a big lead and broke for second before Haren went into his motion.
Haren’s third start of the season was pushed back a day after he threw 13 pitches in a perfect 14th inning on Saturday night against Toronto and got credit for the Angels’ 6-5 victory.
That relief appearance ended his string of 203 consecutive starts.
Carmona gave up four hits in 7 2/3 innings. The right-hander struck out six and walked three.
After giving up a leadoff single to his first batter, Carmona allowed only one other ball to be hit out of the infield through the fifth inning ― a leadoff homer in the third by Bourjos that landed in the lower seats in the left-field corner.
In the seventh, Trumbo hit a drive just inside the left-field pole for his first big league home run. All but one of the Angels’ 14 homers this season have come with the bases empty.
Angels left fielder Vernon Wells, acquired in a trade from Toronto in January, got the day off after going 4 for 44 over his first 10 games with his new club. In his previous five seasons with the Blue Jays, the 13-year veteran and three-time All-Star had a cumulative average of .332 in his first 10 games.
