Stubbs' HR powers Indians past Angels 4-1 in 14th

Posted: Updated:

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Drew Stubbs hit a two-run homer in the 14th inning, and the Cleveland Indians outlasted the Los Angeles Angels 4-1 Tuesday night to gain ground in the AL playoff race.

Lonnie Chisenhall got the Indians going with a one-out single in the 14th off Joe Blanton (2-14), the Angels' seventh pitcher. Stubbs, the Indians' No. 9 hitter, was 0 for 4 with a walk before connecting for his first homer since July 4.

Michael Bourn then singled and scored from second on Blanton's throwing error for the Angels, who have lost 8 of 10. Los Angeles stranded 17 runners - 13 after the sixth inning, including two in the final frame.

Carlos Santana hit a tying homer in the seventh for the Indians, who managed just four hits in the first 12 innings.
