CLEVELAND (AP) - Rookie Bradley Zimmer homered and drove in the go-ahead run with a seventh-inning double and the Cleveland Indians matched a season high with their sixth straight win, 10-4 over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.

Zimmer hit a leadoff homer and broke a 2-all tie with a two-out double off the wall in left-center against Ricky Nolasco (4-12). Zimmer also hit a grand slam in Tuesday's 11-7 win.

Bryan Shaw (4-4) retired the last two hitters in the seventh and recorded an out in the eighth to earn the win.

Cleveland, which is a season-high nine games over .500, put the game away with a seven-run eighth.

Zimmer is batting .281 since being called up May 16. He's 9 for 22 in the last six games and crashed into the wall for a game-saving catch in the 10th inning Tuesday.
