The right-handed ace retired the first 10 batters he faced and allowed only one runner to reach as far as third base.

Tom Wilhelmsen notched a scoreless ninth for the save as the M's took the first of a four-game road series.

Franklin Gutierrez provided the game's only offense with a two-run single in the fifth inning.

Oakland's Brett Anderson (0-1) absorbed the loss, surrendering two runs on four hits in a seven-inning effort.
