SEATTLE (AP) - Pinch-hitter Kendrys Morales had a game-ending three-run homer in the 10th inning and Raul Ibanez connected twice for the Seattle Mariners in a 6-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday.

Ibanez gave the Mariners the lead with a two-run homer in the first inning and added a solo shot in the third, his team-leading 17th. It was his second multihomer game this season and 18th of his career.

Mike Zunio struck out leading off the 10th but reached first on a wild pitch. He advanced to third on Michael Saunders' single before Morales hit the first pitch he saw from reliever Grant Balfour (0-1) deep to right center field. It was Balfour's first loss since June 29, 2012.

Oliver Perez (2-1) pitched two innings to earn the win. Perez has not allowed a run in his last 11 innings.

Brandon Moss' solo home run off reliever Danny Farquhar in the eighth inning tied the game at 3.
