Phoenix, AZ -- Yan Gomes homered and drove in five runs as the Indians outslugged the Athletics, 14-10, in spring training action.

Matt Carson added a two-run homer for the Indians, who had 10 hits and took advantage of nine free passes to stay unbeaten in five preseason games.

Both starters pitched well before the bullpens imploded. Cleveland's Justin Masterson threw two perfect innings in his outing, while his counterpart, Andrew Werner, allowed one unearned run over two frames.

Shane Peterson went 3-for-3 with a two-run homer, and Michael Choice also had a two-run blast in the loss.

Cleveland left fielder Michael Brantley needed stitches in his left forearm after being spiked Monday during the Indians' 14-10 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Brantley was spiked by third baseman Josh Donaldson in a play that ended the third inning. Brantley, who hit .288 with 60 RBIs last season, was taken to a hospital for stitches. He will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

Justin Masterson threw two perfect innings for Cleveland in his first start of the spring. Matt Carson and Yan Gomes homered for the Indians, who improved to 5-0 in exhibition play under new manager Terry Francona. Shane Peterson and 2010 first-round draft pick Michael Choice homered for the Athletics.
