SEATTLE (CBS/AP) — Yoenis Cespedes hit a two-run homer that broke a scoreless tie in the eighth inning, lifting the Oakland Athletics over the Seattle Mariners 3-0 Sunday.

Cespedes pulled a 2-2 slider from Charlie Furbush (0-1) into the left-field bullpen. Cespedes’ second homer of the season came after Jed Lowrie drew a leadoff walk.

Josh Donaldson added a solo home run in the ninth, his third, off Lucas Luetge.

A’s starter Scott Kazmir pitched two-hit ball for six innings, striking out nine without a walk.

Dan Otero (2-0) retired two batters in the seventh. Luke Gregerson worked the eighth and Sean Doolittle allowed one hit in the ninth for his first save.
