SEATTLE (AP) — Fomer Saugus Centurion Tommy Milone got his first loss of the season in the Athletics’ 6-4 loss to Seattle Friday night.

Milone pitched five innings, giving up 10 hits and five runs, three unearned.

He struck out seven.

On the other side, Seattle ace Felix Hernandez took a shutout into the eighth inning, Mike Zunino and Brad Miller both homered and the Seattle Mariners held on after Oakland's late comeback bid.

Hernandez (3-0) struck out 11 and shut down Oakland for the second time in a week, becoming the first Mariners pitcher to win three times in the first nine games of a season.

With the usual "King's Court" for Hernandez home starts expanded to a "Supreme Court" encompassing the entire stadium with yellow shirts and "K'' cards, Hernandez gave up four hits in the 28th double-digit strikeout game of his career.

Zunino chased Milone (0-1) with a two-run shot in the sixth. Miller followed two batters later with a solo homer to center field with the wind blowing in.
