OAKLAND, Calif. -- Kendall Graveman is a big fan of motivational tapes

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Kendall Graveman is a big fan of motivational tapes and speeches, something the Athletics right-hander relied on quite a bit after losing six of his first seven decisions this year.How quickly things change.With the way hes pitched lately, Graveman has emerged as a source of inspiration for teammates.Graveman pitched into the seventh inning to become Oaklands first 10-game winner this season, and the Athletics beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 Wednesday to win the series.I thought we threw the ball well and had a good game plan going in, Graveman said. Just to have that feel from the mechanics side of it gives you a lot of confidence to go out there and continue to execute pitches where you want them.The As took two of three games from the AL Central leaders, who had swept a three-game set against Oakland in July. Cleveland went into the day with the best record in the American League but was held to one run for the third consecutive game while being outscored 14-3 in the series.Hopefully we just had like three days of amnesia, Indians manager Terry Francona said. Those things happen. Not fun when it does but it happens. They did a number on us.Khris Davis tripled and scored as part of Oaklands five-run second inning against Trevor Bauer (9-6).Roberto Perez homered while Jose Ramirez and Lonnie Chisenhall had two hits apiece for Cleveland.Graveman (10-8) extended his scoreless streak to 16 innings before Perez homered in the seventh.Graveman allowed six hits in 6 2/3 innings. Since starting the season 1-6, hes gone 9-2 with a 3.36 ERA in 17 starts.Mark Rzepczynski, Ryan Dull and Ryan Madson combined to retire the final seven batters.To hold a team and a lineup like that to a couple runs ... its fun to watch, Graveman said. Guys are starting to step up and do some good things in big situations.Bauer gave up nine hits over 6 2/3 innings. After striking out a career-high 13 in his last start, he fanned three.Ryon Healy, Max Muncy and Chad Pinder drove in runs during the second for Oakland. Two more runs scored when first baseman Carlos Santana lost Danny Valencias high pop-up in the sun and was charged with an error.Its been kind of a theme for us this year, As manager Bob Melvin said. I cant figure it out. Theres certain days and certain series that we can move the line offensively. We just dont do it consistently enough.PERFECTLY PLACEDPerez homered with two outs in the seventh. The ball hit off the top of the wall in right field and bounced right back into Valencias glove. Umpires initially ruled it a hit, then changed it to a home run -- Perezs first of the season -- after going to replay.That particular part of the fence, behind it, its out of play, so Im guessing thats what they were calling, Melvin said. Its the only place in the ballpark where you have that metal piece behind it, and it ended up affecting us.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: SS Marcus Semien was put on the paternity list. Right-handed reliever J.B. Wendelken was called up from Triple-A Nashville.UP NEXTIndians: RHP Josh Tomlin (11-7) pitches the opener in Texas on Thursday. He was roughed up for eight runs in 3 2/3 innings the last time he faced the Rangers on May 30.Athletics: LHP Ross Detwiler (1-2) makes his third career start against St. Louis on Friday in the opener of a three-game series with the Cardinals. Detwiler has allowed 11 runs over his past 8 2/3 innings. Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping .

CALGARY, Alberta -- Calgary Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau?will miss six weeks after undergoing surgery for a fractured finger, the team announced Thursday.In speaking to the doctors last night and this morning, theyre really happy with how everything went, Flames general manager Brad Treliving said.Gaudreau suffered the injury in Tuesdays 1-0 win over the Minnesota Wild. The team said a timeline for his return will be provided in the coming days.Its his finger, so it can be four [weeks], it can be six, you dont know, Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said.For me, Im just preparing for the worst-case scenario, and thats how it goes. But we wont know anything on this injury until we hear from the doctors. It could be less, it could be more.Gaudreau left Tuesdays game early in the third period after taking a slash to the hand.The NHL has tried to crack down on that stuff, Gulutzan said. What we did last night was we addressed it with the officials, after the second period. There were a few whacks there that Johnny had to go off for. But the third whack got him. But we addressed it.The 23-year-old native of Salem, New Jersey, has 11 points (five goals, six assists) in 17 games this season.Hee signed a $40.dddddddddddd million, six-year contract extension with the Flames last month. Gaudreau struggled at the start of the season, with two goals in his first 14 games, but had three goals in his last two games.Thats a big piece out of our lineup and our team, Flames captain Mark Giordano said. I felt like Johnny was going out there and getting his game to where it needs to be. So its a tough blow.Linden Vey will take Gaudreaus spot in the lineup, but will center the third line between Matt Stajan and Alex Chiasson.Sam Bennett will be elevated to the first line alongside Sean Monahan and Troy Brouwer.Were going to have to continue to play tight-checking, Gulutzan said. Were not the first team or the last thats going to lose a star player and then have to find a way to manufacture wins.We needed to improve, we all know that, and find an identify of a game, or the building blocks of a game thats going to let you have long-term success. When you take an offensive guy out of your lineup, you have to solidify the way you play defensively as a group.
