BALTIMORE (AP) - Brandon Moss hit a grand slam and Scott Kazmir threw seven scoreless innings as the Oakland Athletics beat the Baltimore Orioles 11-1 Sunday in a game that featured another bench-clearing confrontation between the teams.
John Jaso also had four RBIs for the A's, who took two out of three in the series and improved to a major league-best 22-12 on the road. Baltimore allowed a season-high 11 walks in its most lopsided loss of the year.
For the second time in three games, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was in the middle of a dugout-clearing scrum.
This time, Oakland left-hander Fernando Abad threw inside to Machado in the eighth. The bat flew out of Machado's hands and went down the third base line. Both players exchanged words before the benches and bullpens emptied. Machado and Abad were ejected.
