Finale slips away

Angels 9, Indians 3
Aaron Laffey allowed six runs on seven hits in four-plus innings. (Chris Carlson/AP)
Ending a road trip that saw the Indians play their best baseball of the season while some of their most tradable players were dealt away, a tight game got out of hand when Aaron Laffey was knocked around in the five-run fifth. Kelly Shoppach hit a two-run single in the ninth but the Tribe was already down eight.
