Recap


Athletics 4, Dodgers 1: Tommy Milone continued his dominance at home with his first career complete game as host Oakland made it two straight over Los Angeles.

Brandon Moss homered for the sixth time in eight games and Yoenis Cespedes returned to the lineup with two hits and an RBI as the Athletics improved to 11-2 at home in interleague play against the Dodgers.

Milone (7-5) halted a four-start winless streak and improved to 5-1 at home. He allowed one run on three hits to help the A's win for the seventh time in eight games.

Dodgers right-hander Nathan Eovaldi (0-3) allowed three runs on seven hits in 6 1/3 innings to remain winless despite permitting only nine runs in his five starts.

Los Angeles went ahead in the second on Juan Rivera's infield single and Juan Uribe's bloop double to right field. Oakland tied it in the fourth when Cespedes led off with a double and came home on Seth Smith's double.

Cespedes, who had missed nine of the last 10 games with a hamstring injury, also had an RBI single in a two-run fifth.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Athletics improved to 21-16 with Cespedes in the lineup. They are 12-20 when he sits out. ... Dodgers RF Andre Ethier went 0-for-4 Wednesday and is 9-for-59 since June 3. ... Oakland will give another start to Tyson Ross on Saturday. He will take the spot of Bartolo Colon, who is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique. ... Los Angeles has scored only one run in the series.
