Sept. 8, 2010 at 1:54 AM   |   Comments

ANAHEIM, Calif., Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Lou Marson's grand slam was the big blow Tuesday in the Cleveland Indians' 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Marson recorded his first career slam in a five-run Indians sixth inning that knocked the Angels 9 1/2 games out of first place in the American League West.

Travis Hafner also homered in support of Justin Masterson (6-12), who got the win with one run on six hits and five strikeouts over seven innings.

Torii Hunter homered for Los Angeles. Trevor Bell (2-5) took the loss, allowing two runs on four hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Hunter's home run tied the game 1-1 in the fifth but the Indians scored five in the sixth on Hafner's leadoff homer and Marson's bases-clearing blast.
