A's clobbered 8-0, swept in Cleveland

CLEVELAND _ The A's empty weekend in Cleveland came to a quiet conclusion Sunday. Struggling Sonny Gray, who had a history of dominating the Cleveland Indians, was gone after three-plus innings and 64 pitches as the Indians completed a three-game sweep with an 8-0 clobbering of the A's.

The A's came to Cleveland with a record of 9-4 record since the all-star break, the best record in the American League since the break. But all that changed here as the A's were swept and out-scored 19-6 in the three-game series.

"They beat us. They are a good team. They just flat-out beat us," said A's manager Bob Melvin.

The first two games were relatively competitive, the A's losing 5-3 and 6-3, but then came Sunday's blowout, with the beleaguered Gray in the middle of it. Gray (5-10) came into the game with a record of 2-0 and a 0.64 ERA in four career starts vs. Cleveland.

He also came into the game with the highest ERA in the league among qualifiers (5.43) -- and it went up to 5.84. In 3 1/3 innings he gave up seven runs on eight hits.

"It's not his stuff. His stuff the last couple of starts has been good," Melvin said. "It's like he's a little snake bit. Today they found some holes, and got some bounces to go their way."

After retiring the first six batters he faced, Gray gave up five runs in the third inning, two coming on a home run by Mike Napoli.

"It's unbelievably frustrating that his stuff is that good, but then all of a sudden they put up a five spot, and he's battling just to stay out there," Melvin said.

"My stuff is not the problem," said Gray. "I've gone back and looked at last year and previous years, and my stuff is similar to that. Things just aren't going in the right direction now."

Gray was removed from the game after allowing the first five batters in the fourth inning to reach base. Two of them eventually scored.

The A's couldn't do anything with Cleveland's Corey Kluber (10-8), who struck out seven in seven innings. Yonder Alonso had two hits, the only A's player with more than one.

The A's had comew into Cleveland having won two of three in Texas.

"We came in on a roll, but the momentum got away from us and we couldn't get it back," Gray said.

"We got to eight under (.500), but then ran into a buzz saw here," Melvin said.

-- Melvin said he'll be happy when Monday's trade deadline passes. "You try not to get caught up in thinking about it, but it's hard not to," he said. "It will be a relief when it's over. We've got some good players we don't want to lose."

-- The A's were 12-14 in the month of July. . . A's starting pitchers are 4-5 with a 5.44 ERA since the All-Star break. . . Stephen Vogt's fifth-inning double was his 21st of the year, tying him with Buster Posey for second-most among major league catchers.
