CLEVELAND, May 6 (UPI) -- Asdrubal Cabrera homered twice while Mark Reynolds and Jason Kipnis also went deep Monday, sparking the Cleveland Indians' 7-3 win over Oakland.

Kipnis and Cabrera launched back-to-back shots in the first inning and Cabrera added another homer in the fifth for a 3-1 Cleveland lead.

One batter later, Reynolds connected for a 460-foot home run that landed far up into the left-field stands, his American League-leading 10th of the season.

Jason Giambi went 2-for-4 with a two-run single in the victory.

Ubaldo Jimenez (2-2) earned the decision, yielding two runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings while walking three and striking out eight.

Athletics starter Jarrod Parker (1-5) was roughed up for four runs on seven hits over five full frames.

Yoenis Cespedes homered and drove in two runs for Oakland, which dropped the opener of a four-game series.
