TEMPE, Ariz. (CBS/AP) — Chris Young doubled home a run before leaving with a leg cramp in the Oakland Athletics’ 7-5 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.

Seth Smith had two RBIs and Coco Crisp added a pair of hits for Oakland. Young doubled and scored in the first inning but was removed for precautionary reasons with a quadriceps cramp.

Young, acquired from Arizona during the offseason, is expected to play all over the outfield this season because the A’s already have three regulars in Yoenis Cespedes, Coco Crisp and Josh Reddick.

Oakland left-hander Travis Blackley allowed three hits in a scoreless inning.

Angels starter Barry Enright managed only two outs. He gave up three runs and four hits in the first inning.
