Athletics Vs. Padres Final Score: Jonny Gomes Powers Oakland To 6-4 Win

The Oakland Athletics appear to have brought their home run hitting ways back to O.co Coliseum with them after their recent trip to Colorado. On Saturday, the A's won their fifth straight game as they defeated the San Diego Padres by a final score of 6-4.

Oakland opened the scoring in the bottom of the fourth inning as Seth Smith hit his seventh home run of the yeah and Collin Cowgill added a two-out RBI single to give the A's a 2-0 lead. They would tack on another run in the bottom of the fifth with an RBI double from Jemile Weeks.

In the top of the sixth, the Padres closed the gap to 3-2 with a Carlos Quentin home run and captured a 4-3 lead in the top of the seventh as Will Venable hit a go-ahead two-run double.

The A's reclaimed the lead in the bottom of the seventh. Cliff Pennington came home on a wild pitch to tie things up and Jonny Gomes then launched a two-out, two-run homer to left field. Oakland never looked back after that.

Brandon Moss kept his extra-base hits going as he rapped out a double for his only hit of the game. A's starter Tyson Ross went six innings, giving up two runs on just one hit and four walks. The Padres managed only four hits in the game.

Having already secured the series victory, the A's will attempt to extend their win streak as they go for the sweep on Sunday.
