Oakland Athletics pitcher and Saugus graduate Tommy Milone works against the Detroit Tigers on Monday in Oakland.

 

OAKLAND (AP) — The Oakland Athletics backed up another strong start from Saugus High graduate Tommy Milone, who helped the Athletics snap a season-long four-game losing streak with a 10-0 win over the Detroit Tigers on Monday.

Milone (3-3) allowed four hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings to improve to 3-0 with a 1.03 ERA in his past four starts.

"I think it's really helped with my command," Milone said. "I think that's the biggest thing I've seen from before and now is command with the fastball and keeping everything low in the zone."

Kyle Blanks homered in his home debut at the Coliseum and Derek Norris capped Oakland's five-homer day with a grand slam.

Brandon Moss and Josh Donaldson each hit their 12th home run and Yoenis Cespedes also went deep for the A's, who broke out of their recent slump by getting homers from five players for the first time since 2009.

The A's got four solo homers against Drew Smyly to win the first meeting of the season against the team that eliminated them in Game 5 of the division series the past two postseasons.
