OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Rookie Roenis Elias struck out six while pitching into the seventh to win consecutive starts for the first time, Justin Smoak drove in three runs and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 8-3 on Tuesday night for their season-best fourth straight victory.

Smoak hit an RBI double and Dustin Ackley an RBI single in the first to back Elias (3-2), who followed up a 10-strikeout gem at Yankee Stadium his last time out with another impressive start.

The Mariners jumped on Jesse Chavez (2-1) to take a quick first-inning lead for the second straight game against the A's - and Seattle scored all three of its first-inning runs with two outs on the way to its ninth win in 11 games overall.
