ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – C.J. Wilson pitched two-hit ball over eight innings, Hank Conger hit a go-ahead, two-run homer off Zach McAllister, and the Los Angeles Angels beat Cleveland 7-1 Wednesday to send the Indians to their sixth straight loss.
Wilson (4-2) struck out eight, walked one and retired his last 18 batters after a leadoff double in the third by No. 9 hitter Elliot Johnson. Cleveland’s other hit was an RBI single in the second by David Murphy, who was thrown out trying to steal for the inning’s final out.
Los Angeles has scored seven or more runs each of Wilson’s victories, and fewer than four in both losses.
