Healy powers Athletics past Nationals, 10-4

OAKLAND, CALIF. (AP) - Ryon Healy had two doubles and two homers, Jed Lowrie doubled twice and homered, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Washington Nationals 10-4 on Saturday.

A day after being outscored by 10 runs, the A's got off to a fast start as Healy and Lowrie each hit two-run home runs in the bottom of the first inning off starter Joe Ross (2-2).

Healy hit a long solo shot in a three-run seventh inning in which the A's broke open a 7-4 game. It was Healy's first career multi-home run game and the four extra-base hits tied a franchise record accomplished by 16 others since 1913.

Yonder Alonso hit a two-run home run - his 16th - earlier in the seventh.

Daniel Murphy was 3 for 4 with a double for the Nationals, and Adam Lind hit a three-run home run in the third.

Liam Hendriks (2-0) pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings in relief to pick up the win.
