CLEVELAND — Danny Salazar scattered five hits while allowing an unearned run in 8 2/3 innings and the Cleveland Indians  used a four-run sixth inning to beat the Oakland Athletics 5-1 on Friday night.

Salazar (8-4), who came within one out of his second career complete game, struck out eight.

The right-hander retired the first two hitters in the ninth before Ben Zobrist doubled and Billy Butler was hit by a pitch. Cody Allen then got Ike Davis to foul out for his 19th save and third in three nights.

Kendall Graveman (6-5) allowed four runs in 6 2/3 innings for his first loss since June 13. Graveman’s 19-inning scorless streak ended on Yan Gomes’ RBI double in the fourth.

Kipnis drew a bases-loaded walk in the sixth off reliever Drew Pomeranz for the tiebreaking run. Francisco Lindor walked to force in another run and Michael Brantley had a two-run single.
