KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 7 (UPI) -- Josh Reddick ignited a big second inning with a two-run double and added a homer Sunday in the Oakland Athletics' 10-4 spanking of Kansas City.

Reddick's two-bagger sent home Yoenis Cespedes and John Jaso, opening the gates to a game-deciding, five-run outburst.

The A's right fielder struck again in the third with a two-run shot, handing Oakland a 7-1 lead.

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-5 with a bases-empty clout and two RBI while Eric Sogard also went deep en route to a three-RBI performance as the American League West-leading A's took two-of-three from Kansas City in the weekend series.

A.J. Griffin (7-6) held the Royals to two runs on five hits over five innings, earning the victory. He walked one and struck out four.

Kansas City's Luis Mendoza (2-5) lasted only 1 2/3 frames, surrendering five runs on five hits.

Alex Gordon and George Kottaras each homered for the Royals.
