With two outs and runners on second and third at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, recently acquired Angels outfielder David DeJesus came to bat as a pinch hitter against Indians closer Cody Allen. DeJesus worked a 1–2 count before Allen’s last pitch bounced in the dirt in front of Indians catcher Robert Perez and rolled away, allowing Taylor Featherston to score from third on Allen’s second wild pitch of the inning.
Earlier in the inning, Pujols singled with one out and advanced to second on Allen’s first wild pitch. Aybar and Conor Gillaspie walked (Featherston ran for Gillaspie), setting the stage for Cron’s two-run single.
The Angels improved to 57–50 and the Indians fell to 49–58.
