Mariners Miss Sweep Again

Posted: Updated:

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Bartolo Colon worked seven strong innings to win his sixth straight decision, Josh Reddick homered and matched a career high with four hits, and the Oakland Athletics avoided a sweep with a 10-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.

Sean Smith and Brandon Moss each homered and drove in two runs for the Athletics, who moved three games ahead of Texas in the AL West - their largest lead since ending the 2006 season four games up. Josh Donaldson also went deep, and Yoenis Cespedes, Coco Crisp and John Jaso each drove in runs for Oakland.

Colon (9-2) allowed two runs on eight hits, did not walk a batter and struck out three to extend his home win streak to seven.

Hisashi Iwakuma (7-2) lost for the first time since April 23, giving up four runs on a season high-tying eight hits.
