ANAHEIM, Calif. - Lonnie Chisenhall hit a two-run homer during Clevelands four-run fourth, and Zach McAllister pitched into the seventh inning of the Indians 5-2 victory over Jered Weaver and the slumping Los Angeles Angels on Monday night. Nick Swisher homered and threw out a runner at the plate for the Indians, who won for just the fifth time in 14 games to regain ground in the AL Central. Cleveland trails first-place Detroit by 6 1/2 games and sits 4 1/2 games out of the second wild-card spot. McAllister (6-7) gave up five hits while striking out five, earning his second straight victory after a six-start winless stretch. Mark Trumbo homered and drove in both runs for the Angels, who have lost 11 of 15. Mike Trout sat out to rest his right hamstring. The Angels also learned before the game theyll be without Albert Pujols for the rest of the season, shutting down the $240 million slugger who partially tore the plantar fascia in his left foot last month. Weaver (7-7) allowed eight hits and four runs over six innings in his second straight loss for the Angels. Los Angeles longtime ace got into serious trouble only in the fourth, but the Indians five-hit burst while batting around was more than enough. Jason Kipnis led off the fourth with a walk, eventually scoring on Carlos Santanas single. After Jason Giambis sacrifice fly, Chisenhall ended an 0-for-12 skid by putting his seventh homer of the season into the elevated stands in right field. Los Angeles responded with a run on Trumbos single later in the fourth, but Swisher threw out Trumbo at the plate on Chris Nelsons fly to medium right field. Angels manager Mike Scioscia argued catcher Yan Gomes didnt tag Trumbo, but replays were unclear. Swisher, who had two hits, connected off Kevin Jepsen in the ninth for his 14th homer. McAllister was sharp in the opening game of the Indians only series at the Big A this season, combining with three relievers to hold the Angels to six hits. Before Trumbos ninth-inning blast, Los Angeles managed to get just three runners in scoring position — all in the fourth inning. McAllister went nearly 11 weeks between victories before last weeks win at Minnesota. Trumbo added his 29th homer off Indians closer Chris Perez, connecting in his third straight game for the fifth time in his career. Trout was held out of the Angels starting lineup after he felt tightness in his right hamstring while running out a double in Sundays loss to Houston. The All-Star outfielder has reached base in 40 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the majors and the second-longest in team history. "It feels a lot better today," Trout said before the game. "I feel good, but I dont want to push it. Well see how it feels tomorrow." Peter Bourjos started in Trouts absence, but the speedy outfielder went hitless and dropped to 0 for 12 since returning from a lengthy absence with a broken right wrist. NOTES: Rookie RHP Danny Salazar had been expected to start Mondays game for the Indians, but manager Terry Francona decided a few days ago to give Salazar an extra day of rest. Francona simply forgot to tell people about his decision, he said. Cleveland is carefully monitoring the workload of the 23-year-old Salazar, who had elbow ligament replacement surgery in 2010. "When we have days where we can buy (Salazar extra) days (off), it makes sense," Francona said. "Were just trying to use common sense." ... Salazar will make his fourth career start Tuesday against Los Angeles C.J. Wilson. ... Angels 2B Howie Kendrick is working out aggressively to return from his left knee injury, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia didnt sound certain Kendrick will return from the disabled list Wednesday. "He still has some things he has to work through," Scioscia said. Jeremy Sprinkle Jersey . Bryce Harper? He also came into Wednesday without a long ball and hadnt driven in a run. He was hitting .160, had nearly three times as many strikeouts as hits and was dropped to seventh in the batting order. Dustin Hopkins Jersey . The two teams will play through the completion of the game starting at 5pm ct on Wednesday. The regularly scheduled Wednesday night matchup will follow that and will now be seven innings. http://www.cheapredskinsjerseysonline.c ... sey-online ."
