Indians Vs. Athletics Final Score: Kipnis Comes Through For Cleveland In 5-1 Win Over Oakland

Another night and another hero for the Cleveland Indians. Oh, and another win on the road as the Indians put away the Oakland Athletics 5-1 on Saturday night.

A night after Jack Hannahan came up big for the Indians in their Friday win, second baseman Jason Kipnis delivered the big offensive blows to give starting pitcher Jeanmar Gomez and the bullpen all of the run support they would need to secure the win.

Kipnis finished 4-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored for the game. He also put the game away in the eighth inning by delivering a two-run triple and then scoring himself on a wild pitch. Gomez went into the sixth inning allowing just one run and four hits before giving way to the bullpen which held the Athletics in check until Chris Perez could notch his sixth save of the season.

The Indians are now 7-1 on their current road trip with one game left on Sunday afternoon when they wrap up their weekend series in Oakland.
