Anaheim Angels Team Report - May 1

(Sports Network) - The Anaheim Angels can wrap up a three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians today at Jacobs Field.

In the second of the three-game set on Wednesday, Jarrod Washburn pitched eight solid innings as the Angels continued their dominance over the Indians with a 6-2 win. Brad Fullmer and Bengie Molina each went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs batted in for the Angels, who won for the sixth straight time in Cleveland.

Washburn (2-3), the Angels' ace, gave up just two runs on five hits for his first win since April 10 against Seattle.

Troy Glaus and Shawn Wooten each had two hits and two runs scored for Anaheim, which defeated the Indians 10-1 on Tuesday. Tim Salmon doubled in the first to extend his career-best hitting streak to 18 games.

Scot Shields makes his second start of the season for the Angels on Thursday. Shields is 1-0 with an impressive 0.77 ERA in eight appearances this year.

In his only previous start of the season, Shields earned the win against Boston on Saturday, allowing one run on five hits in 5 1/3 innings. He walked none and struck out five.

Shields has made just one career appearance against Cleveland, throwing two scoreless innings

Although Anaheim is hitting .291 as a team and allowing its opponents to bat just .258, it owns a disappointing 13-14 record.
