OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Rajai Davis drove in four runs, Scott Hairston hit a three-run homer and the Oakland Athletics jumped all over Minnesota starter Glen Perkins to beat the Twins 16-1 Wednesday in their highest scoring game in nearly two years.

After scoring at least 12 runs just once all season heading into this series, the offensively challenged A's pulled off the trick twice in three games against the Twins. Oakland rallied from 10 runs down to win the opener 14-13 and then broke out to the big early lead and coasted to the easy victory to win the three-game series.

Perkins (5-6) once again was done in by first-inning woes, allowing five runs in the opening frame.
