OAKLAND, Calif., June 16 (UPI) -- Bartolo Colon kept Seattle at bay for seven innings and Josh Reddick went 4-for-5 with one of four Oakland homers Sunday in a 10-2 romp over the Mariners.

Colon (9-2) racked up a sixth win in six starts, limiting the Mariners to two runs on eight hits. The veteran right-hander didn't issue a walk and struck out three as the A's avoided a three-game sweep.

Reddick's run-scoring single in the fourth forged a 2-2 tie and his solo homer in the ninth capped the scoring as Oakland pounded out 17 hits.

Brandon Moss, Coco Crisp and Josh Donaldson each added a bases empty home run for the American League West-leading Athletics.

Seattle's Hisashi Iwakuma (7-2) gave up four runs on eight hits in five innings.

Endy Chavez drove in both Mariners runs.
