A's stomp M's

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Josh Reddick finished 4-for-5 with a homer and two RBI, while Josh Donaldson, Seth Smith and Brandon Moss also went deep as the Oakland Athletics avoided the sweep with a 10-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners in the finale of a three-game series.

Moss and Smith both hit solo homers and drove in two runs apiece for the Athletics, who ended a brief two-game losing skid and have won four of six.

Bartolo Colon (9-2) continued his recent success and earned a victory in his sixth straight start after tossing seven innings of eight-hit, two-run ball. The righty has surrendered a combined five runs during the streak.

Hisashi Iwakuma (7-2) picked up his first loss since April 23, tying a season- low with five innings pitched, allowing four runs on eight hits and three walks.

The right-hander baffled Oakland in two wins earlier this year, allowing three runs in 13 innings with 16 strikeouts and no walks, but found no such success on Sunday.

Endy Chavez drove in Seattle's two runs with a single in the second for the Mariners.
