Stefen Romero hit his first major league home run to break a tie in the fifth inning, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 4-2 on Monday night for their third straight victory and eighth in 10 games.
The right-hander faced the minimum through three and didn't allow a hit until Jed Lowrie's one-out single in the fourth. Brandon Moss hit a tying two-run homer two batters later.
Romero, a 25-year-old rookie, homered in his 53rd career at-bat. He is batting .306 over his last nine games.
