Salazar Shines as Tribe Walks to Win; Indians 5, Athletics 1

| On 11, Jul 2015

Danny Salazar came within one out of a complete game, leading the Indians to a 5-1 win over the A’s on Friday night in front of 28,539 on a picture-perfect night at Progressive Field.

Salazar allowed an unearned run in the first and then cruised until the ninth, when he allowed a double and hit Billy Butler. Cody Allen relieved and got the final out for his 19th save; Allen also recorded his 19th straight scoreless outing.

The Indians current rotation of Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer, Danny Salazar and Cody Anderson has a 3.59 ERA, third in the AL and eighth in MLB.

Yan Gomes had an RBI double in the fourth before the Indians scored four in the sixth – Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor drew bases-loaded walks, and Michael Brantley followed with a two-run single.
