CLEVELAND (AP) – Abraham Almonte scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in Cleveland’s four-run seventh inning in the Indians’ 5-3 comeback victory over the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.
Cleveland erased a 3-1 deficit after being held to four hits through six innings. Jason Kipnis’ bases-loaded single tied it, and Almonte scored from third on Ryan Dull’s wild pitch one batter later.
Cody Anderson (2-4) pitched a scoreless seventh. Cody Allen worked out of ninth-inning trouble for 20th save. He allowed a pair of one-out singles in the ninth, but stuck out Jed Lowrie before Josh Reddick flied out to deep center.
Kendall Graveman (7-7) allowed four runs – three earned – in 6 1/3 innings and lost for the first time since May 19.
Reddick and Khris Davis hit back-to-back homers in the sixth for Oakland.
Carlos Santana homered in the sixth for Cleveland.
