OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Jed Lowrie and Chris Young hit back-to-back home runs in the seventh inning, helping Tommy Milone and the Oakland Athletics beat the Seattle Mariners 6-2 on Wednesday night.
Nate Freiman had two hits and an RBI in his major league debut as Oakland knocked around Joe Saunders and two relievers after managing just one run and six hits in the first two games of the series.
Milone allowed a pair of first-inning home runs but settled down to retire 17 of his final 18 batters.
Michael Morse had one of the homers for Seattle, his third in two days.
