OAKLAND, Calif. -- Jason Kipnis drove in three runs and scored twice, Jeanmar Gomez pitched into the sixth inning for his first win of the season and the Cleveland Indians extended their best road trip in more than 20 years with a 5-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night.

Jason Donald had two hits and also scored twice while Travis Hafner and Jack Hannahan added two hits apiece for the surging Indians. Cleveland is assured it will win its first three series on the road for the first time since 1988. Cleveland also improved to 7-1 on its current nine-game swing.

Cliff Pennington doubled and scored the only run for the A’s. It’s the sixth time in 16 games Oakland has been held to one run or fewer.
