Romero's first big league homer lifts Mariners

OAKLAND, Calif. — 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.

Chris Young (2-0) allowed two hits over six strong innings to win his second straight start. He began the year with four straight no-decisions as he came back from shoulder surgery that caused him to miss much of 2013.

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.
