OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Drew Pomeranz and two relievers combined on a three-hit shutout and the Oakland Athletics beat the Seattle Mariners 12-0 on Friday night.

Ike Davis drove in four runs, Mark Canha hit his first major league home run and Sam Fuld added three hits for Oakland.

The A's continued their pattern of an on-again, off-again offense by knocking around Mariners starter Taijuan Walker and three relievers. In its three wins this season, Oakland has outscored its opponents 30-0.

Canha, who came within inches of hitting a grand slam on Wednesday, went 3 for 5. He reached on an infield single and scored on Ben Zobrist's double in the first. His homer off Walker in the second came on a 2-0 pitch and landed halfway up the bleacher seats in left.

Pomeranz (1-0) gave up just two hits and faced only one batter over the minimum through seven innings.
