PHOENIX (AP) - 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.
