OAKLAND -- A quartet of two-run home runs from Logan Morrison, Seth Smith, Nelson Cruz and Brad Miller carried the Mariners to a 9-5 victory over the A's at the Coliseum on Friday night.
The Mariners, who managed just two hits in Thursday's series-opening loss, tallied 13 this time, including nine in 6 1/3 innings against A's starter Jesse Chavez, who was responsible for Morrison and Smith's home runs that wiped away a three-run lead gained by the A's in the second against J.A. Happ -- highlighted by RBI hits from Mark Canha and Billy Burns. Canha also hit a two-run double in the ninth.
