Athletics Vs. Padres Final Score: Oakland Surges To 10-2 Win

The Oakland Athletics hosted the San Diego Padres on Friday night in the first game of a three-game interleague series. Both teams were coming off three-game away series sweeps, but only the Athletics would keep the good mojo rolling as they blew out the Pads by a final score of 10-2.

The Padres struck first in the top of the first inning with an RBI single by Carlos Quentin. The A's quickly turned things around with a big crooked number, scoring five runs in the bottom of the frame on a Josh Reddick triple, a Brandon Inge single and the sixth home run of the season for Brandon Moss, who has now homered in four straight games.

Chris Denorfia hit an RBI single in the top of the second inning to make it 5-2, but that would be the last run of the game for San Diego. Cliff Pennington and Coco Crisp had RBI hits in the bottom of the fourth inning. A run scored on a throwing error and Pennington drove in another in the sixth and Jemile Weeks hit a sacrifice fly in the eighth to make it a nice, round 10 runs for the home team. Pennington was 3-for-3 with a walk and two RBI.

Travis Blackley picked up his first win for the A's with two runs allowed on five hits and two walks in six innings of work.
