Recap

Athletics 7, Indians 0: Coco Crisp homered and drove in five in support of Jarrod Parker as host Oakland completed a three-game sweep of Cleveland.

Brandon Moss added a solo home run and Cliff Pennington scored three times for the Athletics, who remain a half-game out of a wild card spot in the American League.

Crisp singled in the opening run in the third inning and broke the game open in the fifth. Following back-to-back singles by Jemile Weeks and Pennington, Crisp got a first-pitch sinker from Justin Masterson (9-11) and lifted it down the right field line for his seventh home run.

Parker (8-7) entered Sunday 0-3 with a 6.85 ERA in his previous four starts but had little trouble with the Indians lineup. The rookie right-hander scattered six hits and walked one while striking out two in eight innings.

Masterson was charged with all seven runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings while walking one and striking out five. The right-hander failed to keep a fastball down on Moss’ 13th homer in the fourth, with the slugger taking it to virtually the same spot as Crisp’s blast down the right field line.

The A’s tacked on two more runs in the seventh on Weeks’ RBI double and Crisp’s bloop single to center.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Crisp has two homers and two homers and eight RBIs in the last four games. … The Indians have dropped five straight to drop behind the Kansas City Royals and into fourth place in the American League Central. … Cleveland continues its nine-game road trip at Seattle on Monday. … Oakland hosts a three-game series with the Minnesota Twins beginning Monday.
