Davis hits 33rd home run in A's 9-1 win over Indians
OAKLAND, Calif. - OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Khris Davis hit a three-run homer and scored three times, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Cleveland Indians 9-1 on Tuesday night to snap a three-game losing streak.
Davis had struck out in six consecutive at-bats before hitting his 33rd home run of the season off starter Danny Salazar. That's the most by an Oakland player since Jack Cust hit 33 in 2008.
Danny Valencia added two hits in his first game back in the A's lineup after being fined following a clubhouse fight with teammate Billy Butler while Ryon Healy had three hits including two doubles.
Sean Manaea (5-8) allowed three hits and one run over seven innings for his second win since June 29. Manaea walked two and fanned eight to become the first A's rookie pitcher to reach 100 strikeouts since Dan Straily in 2013.
Chris Gimenez homered for the Indians, who went into the day with the best record in the AL.
