If you didn't stay up last night to watch the end of the game, and don't have time to read any of the above recaps, I'll give you the TL;DR version.

Both starters pitched well, especially Matt Shoemaker.

Indians scored three runs to tie the game off closer Huston Street in the top of the ninth.

Angels won in the bottom of the ninth off Bryan Shaw thanks to bad pitching by Shaw and another bloop single.
