Indians Vs. A's Score Update: Cleveland Trails 3-0 In The 7th Inning

The Cleveland Indians opened their four-game series against the Oakland Athletics on Monday, but through the first six innings, they are struggling to get anything going against Athletics starter Brett Anderson.

Anderson has allowed just two hits and no runs over the first six innings while striking out four. Cleveland didn't notch their first hit until Michael Brantley reached on an infield single with one out in the fifth inning.

Roberto Hernandez started the game for Cleveland, but left with one out in the third inning due to a right ankle sprain. The team is calling Hernandez day-to-day following the injury. He allowed three runs on four hits during his 2.1 innings of work.

Oakland got on the board early, scoring one run in each of the first three innings. Seth Smith got the scoring started with a sacrifice fly in the first inning. Josh Reddick extended the lead to 2-0 in the second inning with his 26th home run of the season, while Chris Carter drove in the Athletics' third run in the third inning.

Chris Seddon took over for Hernandez and has tossed 3.2 scoreless innings.
