Howie Kendrick's walk-off bunt wins it for Angels
Howie Kendrick's two-out bunt split Cleveland reliever Chris Perez and first baseman Russell Branyon for a single, driving in Torii Hunter from third base to complete the Angels' 4-3 come-from-behind victory at Angel Stadium.
Hunter had drawn the Angels even with a three-run homer in the sixth inning, and he led off the ninth with a double that he legged out on a ball hit to right fielder Shin-Soo Choo.
The Indians elected to intentionally walk Hideki Matsui, and Kendry Morales grounded into a double play to leave Hunter at third with two out. Cleveland then walked Juan Rivera to bring up Kendrick, who bunted on the first pitch to help the Angels overcome a three-run deficit for the second time on their homestand.
The Angels have won 10 of their last 15 games after starting the season 2-6.
