Mariners back Karns with enough offense in 4-3 win over A’s

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Robinson Cano had three hits and scored twice, Kyle Seager hit a tiebreaking double in the sixth inning and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 4-3 on Monday night.

Nelson Cruz added three hits, and Chris Iannetta and Adam Lind drove in runs for the Mariners, who have won five straight at the Oakland Coliseum.

Nathan Karns (3-1) gave up three runs over six-plus innings. Seattle’s right-hander lost to Oakland in his first start of the season on April 9 but struck out six and walked one this time to earn his third straight win.

Steve Cishek struck out pinch-hitter Jed Lowrie with two runners on for his seventh save.

Khris Davis homered twice and had three RBIs for the A’s.
