ANAHEIM, Calif., May 9 (UPI) -- Gary Matthews Jr. completed a late Los Angeles comeback with an eighth-inning homer Wednesday night, lifting the Angels past Cleveland, 3-2.

The Indians took a 2-0 lead into the seventh, but the Angels got to Paul Byrd for two runs in the seventh, and Matthews hit his homer off Fernando Cabrera (1-2) to lead off the eighth.

Cleveland had a three-game winning streak snapped and lost for the fourth time in 17 games. The Angels had dropped their previous three outings.

Erick Aybar reached on an infield single to start the Los Angeles seventh and scored in front of a homer by Kendry Morales.

That made a winner out of Dustin Moseley (3-0), who allowed a hit over two innings in relief of Jared Weaver.

Francisco Rodriguez worked a perfect ninth for his 11th save.
