OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Felix Hernandez pitched eight strong innings, Robinson Cano drove in two runs, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 8-3 Saturday night for their fourth straight win.

Logan Morrison and Shawn O'Malley each homered as the Mariners matched their season-best win streak from May 8-12, which included a three-game sweep of the A's. Mark Trumbo, Kyle Seager and Brad Miller also drove in runs.

Mark Canha hit a home run and Billy Butler had two RBIs for the A's, who lost their fourth straight. Stephen Vogt went 2 for 3 against Hernandez and is hitting .524 (11-for-21) against him.

Hernandez (16-8) allowed three runs and six hits in his eight innings. He did not walk a batter and struck out nine.

A's starter Jesse Chavez (7-14) allowed five runs on six hits in two-plus innings, his shortest outing of the year.
