The Cleveland Indians finished off a four game sweep of the Oakland Athletics yesterday, with a 9-2 win. The Tribe jumped out to two-run lead on a two-run homer from Jason Kipnis in the first and tallied three more in the second on a Yan Gomes RBI double and Drew Stubbs RBI single. Cleveland would put the game out of reach with a solo homer from Nick Swisher in the third and a two-run smash from American League home run leader Mark Reynolds in the fifth. Tribe hurler Scott Kazmir picked up his second win, throwing six innings and giving up just one run on five hits with ten strikeouts. The Indians will now head to Detroit tonight at 7.
The Cincinnati Reds are back in action tonight as they host the Milwaukee Brewers. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 6:40 and first pitch at 7:10.

Ohio softball edged Miami, 3-2 yesterday to stay alive in the MAC tournament in Akron. The Lady Cats took a 2-0 lead after an Amanda Dalton RBI single and pushed the lead out to three in the fifth on a solo blast from Lauren Gellerman. However, Miami would cut the Ohio lead to one in the sixth and had a runner on with two outs in the seventh, but a fantastic catch by Alyssa Wolfe running through the fence would clinch a victory for Ohio softball. The Cats will take on Kent State this afternoon at 1:30.
