Athletics overcome Kazmir's ejection for win

CLEVELAND — Brandon Moss hit a two-run homer and drove in three runs and Josh Donaldson also had three RBIs, helping the Oakland Athletics overcome starter Scott Kazmir's ejection in the second inning to beat the Cleveland Indians 6-2 on Saturday night.

Dan Otero (4-0) relieved Kazmir and pitched 3 2-3 scoreless innings to help seal Oakland's eighth win in nine games

Kazmir was ejected by plate umpire Jerry Layne after the left-hander walked Jesus Aguilar on a borderline full-count pitch with one out in the second. The walk was the third Kazmir allowed and he was clearly unhappy with Layne's strike zone. Kazmir yelled at the umpire, who quickly ejected the pitcher.

The Indians have lost three straight and five of seven. Cleveland committed three errors and has made a major league-high 43 errors in 43 games.
