Mark Canha and Jurickson Profar each hit two home runs and Homer Bailey pitched six solid innings in his Oakland debut as the host Athletics defeated the Seattle Mariners 10-2 on Wednesday afternoon.

Chad Pinder and Ramon Laureano also homered for the A’s, who scored all of their runs via the long ball. Oakland swept the two-game series and has won six in a row overall, outscoring its opponents 47-13.

Seattle suffered its sixth successive loss, during which it has been outscored 54-13.

Bailey (8-6), a veteran right-hander, was acquired Sunday in a trade with Kansas City. He allowed two runs on seven hits with no walks and six strikeouts.
