Ryan, Smoak homers lead Seattle past Oakland 5-3

SEATTLE (AP) _ Brendan Ryan hit a two-run homer, Justin Smoak added a solo shot and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 5-3 on Sunday. Ryan's homer in the second inning was his first of the season. Seattle's starting shortstop hit three home runs last season all of them coming on the road.

Snapping streaks was the tone of the day. While Ryan hit his first homer before the home crowd, Smoak snapped a skid of 11 straight at-bats without a hit when he lined a solo homer out to right field with two outs in the third off Graham Godfrey (0-2). Blake Beavan (1-1) threw seven strong innings. His only trouble came in the fifth when the first two batters reached and Eric Sogard followed with a three-run homer.
