Athletics vs. Indians, MLB Scores: Craig Breslow, A's Offense Struggle In 4-3 Loss

The Oakland Athletics dropped back to .500 Thursday afternoon as they lost 4-3 to the Cleveland Indians in twelve innings. Craig Breslow took the loss for the A’s as he gave up three hits and a walk in the twelfth inning, allowing the Indians to score two runs. The A’s grabbed a run in the bottom of the inning but couldn’t get the second run home from third.

Brett Anderson made the start for Oakland and put together a solid performance. He gave up two runs through nine innings, bouncing back from a tough outing against the Rangers last weekend in which he gave up seven runs over five innings. Indians starter Jeanmar Gomez lasted 5 1/3 innings, giving up one run on six hits and two walks.

The A’s offense couldn’t get runs across in spite of repeatedly getting men to second and third. Ryan Sweeney was the A’s offensive highlight of the game as he went 5-for-6 with two RBIs.

The A’s will head off to Kansas City for three games followed by three games against the Rangers in Arlington.
