OAKLAND, Calif. — Omar Narváez hit a two-run homer, J.P. Crawford drove in three runs after coming off the injured list earlier in the day, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 9-2 on Friday night.
Narváez finished with three hits and scored three times. Mallex Smith also homered for Seattle, and Kyle Seager added a sacrifice fly to tie Raúl Ibañez for sixth place in franchise history with 612 RBI.
Mariners left-hander Marco Gonzales (7-6) allowed one earned run and seven hits in seven innings. He struck out three and walked two to beat the A’s for the second time this season.
Matt Chapman tripled and made another dazzling defensive play for Oakland. Jurickson Profar added two hits.
The Mariners were swept by the A’s in a three-game series at the Coliseum in late May and trailed 1-0 early Friday.
Crawford’s bases-loaded double in the fourth put Seattle ahead for good and came one batter after shortstop Marcus Semien dropped a throw while trying to cover second base. Seager’s sacrifice fly made it 4-1.
Narváez singled in the fourth and fifth, and then hit his career-best 10th homer off Wei-Chung Wang in the seventh.
Smith went deep in the eighth.
A’s starter Chris Bassitt (3-3) allowed four runs, three earned, and five hits in 5 2/3 innings in his first appearance against Seattle since 2016.
Chapman, Oakland’s Gold Glove third baseman, made a sliding backhanded catch in left field to rob Daniel Vogelbach of a hit in the first inning.
