Posted: Updated:

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Jack Cust hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning and the Oakland Athletics beat Seattle 5-3 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep of the last-place Mariners.

Aaron Cunningham's pinch-hit, two-run double against Miguel Batista (4-14) in the seventh tied it and the A's earned their fourth season series win against the Mariners in five years. Bobby

Crosby also drove in a run for the A's. Brad Ziegler (3-0) pitched a perfect eighth and Joey Devine worked the ninth for his first career save.
