Brett Anderson left in the sixth inning with a cervical strain, and the Oakland Athletics hung on to beat the Cleveland Indians 6-4 on Monday night.

Anderson (5-3) allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings, improving to 4-0 with a 0.94 ERA in six starts against the Indians. The 31-year-old left-hander was injured in the fifth inning when he ducked to avoid a ball hit up the middle by Roberto Pérez. Both pieces of Pérez’s broken bat also sailed close to the pitcher.

Anderson finished the inning, then was removed in the sixth with a 3-1 lead and a runner on second.
