Tommy Milone continued his dominance at home with his first career complete game as host Oakland made it two straight over Los Angeles with a 4-1 win Thursday night.
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 A’s 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.
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 Uribe’s bloop double to right field. Oakland tied it in the fourth when Cespedes led off with a double and came home on 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.
