ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Lonnie Chisenhall hit a two-run homer during Cleveland's four-run fourth, and Zach McAllister pitched into the seventh inning of the Indians' 5-2 victory over Jered Weaver and the slumping Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.
Nick Swisher homered and threw out a runner at the plate for the Indians, who won for just the fifth time in 14 games to regain ground in the AL Central.
Cleveland trails first-place Detroit by 6½ games and sits 4½ games out of the second wild-card spot.
McAllister (6-7) gave up five hits while striking out five, earning his second straight victory after a six-start winless stretch.
Mark Trumbo homered and drove in both runs for the Angels, who have lost 11 of 15.
Mike Trout sat out to rest his right hamstring.
