Indians find a win out west

Jake Westbrook picked up his first win since September 1 as the Tribe got off to a good start to their road trip, beating the Oakland A’s 7-2. Other than Jason Michaels, every other Indian in the lineup contributed to the 13-hit night. Victor Martinez got it all started with a two-run homer in the first inning. Casey Blake added a two-run double in the third to give the Indians a healthy early advantage. The Tribe led 7-0 after five innings and cruised to the victory behind the arm of Westbrook, who surrendered one earned run in 7 2/3 innings.

Maybe they just needed a change of scenery. After averaging under 3 runs per game on the homestand, they busted out the bats Monday and showed some offensive production.
