OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Josh Donaldson hit a two-run homer, freshly promoted Stephen Vogt hit a sacrifice fly for his first major league RBI, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-3 on Tuesday night.
Josh Reddick had an RBI double, Yoenis Cespedes added an RBI single, and Brandon Moss also hit a sacrifice fly as the A's returned from the road to a cleaned-up Coliseum for an eight-game homestand.
There was fresh carpeting and other upgrades nine days after a sewage problem and flooding in the clubhouses and umpire room that sent the A's and Mariners scrambling for the locker room of the NFL's Oakland Raiders.
Pat Neshek (2-1) pitched one inning for the win, his 14th scoreless appearance in his last 15.
Joey Votto hit his 14th homer, and Cincinnati's Derrick Robinson had a career-high four hits.
