Recap: Seattle vs. Oakland

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Offseason acquisitions Hector Noesi and Jesus Montero are paying early dividends for the Seattle Mariners.

Noesi, acquired in a trade with the Yankees, tossed eight scoreless innings in Seattle's 4-0 win over Oakland on Saturday.

The eight innings marked a career-high for Noesi (1-1), as did his six strikeouts. He allowed just five hits in all.

Montero, a part of that same trade, backed the stellar performance with a solo homer and a two-run double and extended his hit streak to eight games.

"He was amazing today," the catcher Montero said of his pitcher. "His fastball was unbelievable, in, outside, amazing. We threw a lot of fastballs and changeups, too, so everything was nice."

Justin Smoak added an RBI for the Mariners, who had lost four of five, including the opener of this three-game series on Friday.

Tommy Milone (1-1) gave up four runs on four hits over six innings in the loss for the Athletics. They had won three of four entering Saturday.

"You feel like sometimes you can't give up any runs," said Milone. "It's harder, but it happens. As a pitcher we want to go out there and throw up zeros and I didn't do that today."

Noesi allowed just one runner to reach scoring position over the first seven innings. In the eighth he escaped a two-out, second and third jam by popping out Coco Crisp to short.

Montero made it 1-0 with a blast to center in the second and added insurance in the sixth. The bases were loaded when Smoak worked the count full before taking ball four. Montero then drove in a pair with a line drive double to right.

Brandon League spelled Noesi in the ninth and worked around a two-out walk to seal the Mariners' win.
