May 7, 2013 at 9:50 PM

CLEVELAND, May 7 (UPI) -- Zach McAllister and two relievers combined for a six-hit shutout Tuesday and the Cleveland Indians blanked Oakland 1-0.

McAllister (3-3) scattered five hits, issued one walk and struck out four over 7 2/3 innings en route to the victory.

Rich Hill got the final out of the eighth inning and Chris Perez completed the whitewash with his fourth save as the Tribe logged a second straight win over the Athletics and seventh in eight games overall.

Yan Gomes provided the game's only run with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly following a error by A's second baseman Eric Sogard.

Oakland starter Tommy Milone (3-4) absorbed the hard-luck loss, allowing just the one unearned run on five hits over seven full frames. The left-hander didn't allow a walk and struck out five.
