A’s rough up Carrasco for 13-3 win over Indians 

Sam Fuld scored two runs on two singles and a walk, leading the A’s over the Cleveland Indians 13-3 on Wednesday.

The center fielder has scored 13 runs in 12 games as the A’s leadoff hitter.

Yoenis Cespedes, who snapped an 0-for-23 slump Monday, drove in a run in Oakland’s two-run fifth inning against Carlos Carrasco, who is trying to earn the final opening in the Indians’ rotation.

Carrasco followed starter Danny Salazar and inherited a 3-0 lead. Carrasco gave up eight runs — five earned — in 2²⁄³ innings.

Top shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor doubled and scored in the third and contributed a run scoring single as the Indians built a 3-0 lead against A’s starter Dan Straily.

Straily allowed three earned runs in four innings of work.

Infielder Nate Frieman hit a three-run home run for Oakland off minor leaguer Shawn Armstrong to break the game open in the eighth.
