Sun spots: Trout, Angels swept in Cleveland with 9-2 loss

CLEVELAND (AP) Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels have a more pressing concern than the AL wild-card race: They need to win their next game to avoid falling below .500.

Abraham Almonte hit his first career grand slam and Josh Tomlin pitched into the eighth inning, leading the Cleveland Indians past the slumping Angels 9-2 Sunday for their fifth straight victory.

Trout and Kole Calhoun both lost catchable fly balls in the sun, and the Indians' offense made them pay. Cleveland capped a three-game sweep and dropped the Angels (65-65) back to .500 for the first time since June 26.
