There was a sign of life, but it was far too late. The Indians struck for four ninth inning runs, but Bartolo Colon had shut them down for eight innings and the offense was lifeless prior to that as the A’s took game two of the series 8-5. Carlos Santana, Shin-Soo Choo, and Brent Lillibridge all had homers to account for the team’s five runs late in the ballgame. Corey Kluber pitched five innings, allowing four runs on four hits. The Indians try to prevent the sweep this afternoon with Justin Masterson facing Jarrod Parker.
