Cahill shuts down Indians

CLEVELAND - Trevor Cahill pitched seven strong innings and the Oakland Athletics beat Cleveland 6-1 Wednesday night, handing the Indians their fifth straight loss.

Cahill (14-5) was helped by three double plays as he improved to 5-1 with a 0.77 ERA in six starts since July 28.

Kevin Kouzmanoff lined a three-run double to cap Oakland's five-run first inning off Mitch Talbot (8-11). The former Indians third baseman broke a 4 for 42 slump (.095) with the shot off the center-field wall.

Jack Cust gave the Athletics a 1-0 lead with an RBI single grounded between first and second. After Mark Ellis walked to load the bases, Rajai Davis grounded a single between third and short to make it 2-0.

Cleveland's first batter reached safely in each of the first six innings, but the Indians lost for the 13th time in 16 games.
