GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Carlos Santana had two hits and Joey Butler hit a grand slam on Friday, powering the Cleveland Indians to a 10-8 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Santana singled and scored from first on Jose Ramirez's double off Jesse Hahn, who was shut down last July because of a strained forearm. Hahn allowed two runs on four hits in four innings.

Butler, claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay, hit his second homer off Seth Frankoff to cap an eight-run fifth inning.

Chris Canha doubled home a pair of runs in the first off Cleveland's Josh Tomlin, who allowed three runs on 10 hits and a walk in 3 1-3 innings.

Andrew Lambo had two hits for the Athletics. Josh Phegley hit his second home run off Austin Adams. Yonder Alonso, who is competing for the A's first base/DH job, singled to raise his spring average to .409.
