OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Mike Zunino hit his first career home run on a tiebreaking solo shot in the seventh inning and the Seattle Mariners held on for a 3-2 win over the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.

Two days after making his big league debut, Zunino connected on a 1-1 pitch from Oakland starter Tommy Milone (6-6) and hit a towering shot to center field to help snap Oakland's 11-game home winning streak.

Raul Ibanez added two hits and an RBI for the Mariners, while Joe Saunders (5-6) allowed five hits over seven innings for his first road victory of the season.

Chris Young homered and had three hits but the A's, coming off an 18-inning win against the New York Yankees, couldn't get much else going.
