Milone Gets 1st Win, A’s Power Past Nationals

OAKLAND (CBS / AP) — Tommy Milone tossed eight innings of two-hit ball for his first win of the season, and three teammates homered to power the Oakland Athletics past the Washington Nationals 8-0 on Friday night.

Brandon Moss went deep and finished with three RBIs, and Yoenis Cespedes and John Jaso each hit a solo shot to back Milone’s gem. The left-hander struck out seven and walked three.

Milone (1-3) left after 108 pitches, and Fernando Rodriguez tossed a scoreless ninth in his first appearance in the majors since October 2012 after rehabbing from elbow ligament replacement surgery.

Moss and Cespedes connected on consecutive pitches in the fifth as the AL West-leading A’s foiled Doug Fister’s season debut. Fister (0-1) allowed nine hits and seven runs in 4 1-3 innings. He struck out two and walked none.
