Almonte leads Indians to 9-2 win against slumping Angels

CLEVELAND (AP) The Cleveland Indians are working on a positive finish to a roller-coaster August.

Abraham Almonte hit his first career grand slam and Josh Tomlin worked into the eighth inning, leading the Indians to a 9-2 win over the slumping Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.

Cleveland (63-66) has won five in a row to stay in the race for the second AL wild card. It is quite a turnaround from an extended period of poor play that dropped the Indians to a season-worst 10 games under .500 earlier this month.
