CLEVELAND — Brett Anderson left in the sixth inning with a cervical strain, and the Oakland Athletics hung on to beat the Cleveland Indians 6-4 on Monday night.
Anderson allowed one run in 51⁄3 innings, improving to 4-0 with a 0.94 ERA in six starts against the Indians. The 31-year-old was injured in the fifth inning when he ducked to avoid a ball hit up the middle by Roberto Perez. Both pieces of Perez’s broken bat also sailed close to the pitcher.
Anderson finished the inning, then was removed in the sixth with a 3-1 lead and a runner on second.
Jurickson Profar, Matt Olson and Matt Chapman homered as Oakland extended its winning streak to four, matching its season high.
