OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The fired-up Oakland Athletics came out swinging, and Chris Young's day was short-lived.
Newcomer Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer as Oakland jumped to a five-run lead in the first, and Young failed to make it out of the inning as Seattle lost 6-1 to the Athletics on Monday.
"I wasn't sharp. My stuff wasn't good, it was flat," Young said. "They came out super-aggressive, you could see it. They were motivated. I didn't have it. When I take the ball I expect to perform."
