Carlos Santana's 13th homer of the season helps the Indians to a 2-1 win over the Angels. (0:25)

CLEVELAND -- Trevor Bauer pitched a season-high eight innings, Francisco Lindor singled to break a tie in the seventh and the Cleveland Indians won their seventh straight game Thursday with a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.

Cleveland is on its longest winning streak of the season and is a season-high 10 games over .500. The Indians completed a 7-0 homestand.

Bauer (9-8) is 4-0 in five career starts against the Angels. He struck out six and allowed seven hits. Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his 18th save. JC Ramirez (9-9) took the loss.

Bauer worked out of a jam in the seventh that began with runners on second and third and no out. Lindor's two-out single off Ramirez scored Brandon Guyer, who drew a leadoff walk. Guyer moved to second on a sacrifice in the seventh. After pinch-hitter Austin Jackson walked, Bradley Zimmer struck out, but Lindor lined a 1-2 pitch to right for the lead.
