SEATTLE (CBS/AP) — Hisashi Iwakuma pitched a career-high 8 2-3 innings, and Kyle Seager and Robinson Cano homered to lift the Seattle Mariners to a 6-2 win over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night.

Iwakuma fanned five of the first six batters he retired en route to eight strikeouts overall. The right-hander allowed five hits and faced the minimum in all but three innings. In his last three starts, Iwakuma is 3-0 with a 0.42 ERA (3 earned runs in 21 2-3 innings), 25 strikeouts and no walks.

Brandon Moss’ two-out, two-run home run off Iwakuma in the ninth snapped his 20-inning scoreless streak.

Seager’s fifth-inning home run — a two-run shot — was his 15th of the season, and 13th at Safeco Field. His 42 RBIs in 47 home games leads the American League.

Cano’s ninth-inning, three-run home run was his seventh of the season, and gave the Mariners a 6-0 lead.
