Young, Callaspo homer as A's beat Indians 7-3

Posted: Updated:

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Chris Young and Alberto Callaspo homered in the fifth inning and the Oakland Athletics beat the Cleveland Indians 7-3 on Sunday.

Jed Lowrie, batting leadoff for only the third time this season, had two hits and scored twice for Oakland. Josh Donaldson drove in three runs as the A's pulled within a half-game of AL West-leading Texas.

Young hit his 11th home run off Cleveland starter Scott Kazmir (7-6) to break a 3-all tie in the fifth. Three pitches later, Callaspo followed with his sixth homer and first since being acquired from the Los Angeles Angels in late July.

Ryan Raburn homered for Cleveland, which has lost 6 of its last seven in Oakland.

Dan Otero (2-0) retired five batters for the win in relief of starter Tommy Milone. Grant Balfour pitched the ninth for his 32nd save.
