OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Ramón Laureano homered to help Sean Manaea win his third straight start, and the Oakland Athletics snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the San Diego Padres 8-4.

Matt Olson hit a two-run triple and new addition Tommy La Stella hit an RBI double for the A’s, pounded 7-0 on Friday night as they returned to the field following four postponed games because of Daniel Mengden’s positive coronavirus test.
