Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Josh Reddick clubbed three homers and drove in
five runs as the Oakland Athletics went on the offensive with a 17-hit attack
in their 14-6 trouncing of the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.
Reddick, who had just two homers in his last 39 games entering the day, capped
his evening with a three-run blast. Jed Lowrie and Yoenis Cespedes contributed
back-to-back homers in the first inning to begin the onslaught.
The Athletics won for just the second time in eight games, keeping at least a
share of the lead in the AL West. Jarrod Parker (8-6) scattered three runs on
six hits with six strikeouts over six innings to notch the win.
Esmil Rogers (3-7) struggled once again and was beaten badly for a third
straight outing. He got through just three innings, allowing three of the
homers and seven runs. He is 0-5 with a 7.13 ERA over his last nine starts.
Jose Bautista and Colby Rasmus homered, while Jose Reyes, Brett Lawrie and
Emilio Bonifacio each drove in a run for the Jays in the setback.
