A's Drop Maurer, Mariners To Earn Four-Game Split

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Josh Reddick and Yoenis Cespedes gave Brandon Maurer a rude welcome to the big leagues by hitting two-run homers off the Seattle rookie that led the Oakland Athletics to an 8-2 victory over the Mariners on Thursday.
 
A.J. Griffin (1-0) allowed two runs in six innings and John Jaso drove in a run against his former team as the Athletics won back-to-back games to earn a split of the season-opening series.
 
Michael Morse homered for the third straight day and joined Ken Griffey Jr. in 1997 as the only Mariners to homer four times in the first four games. But that wasn't enough as Maurer (0-1) struggled in his major league debut.
