Six doubles and a triple poured from the busy bats of the winners, 17 hits in all.
After opening with a run in the second, the A's salted it away with six in the third, marked by Babe Jensen's two-run homer and doubles by Bill White, John Hooper, Vic Mastro and Leo Righetti, along with singles by Mitchell and Hooper, and a walk.
Guy Miller's error paved the way for a single run in the fifth, four singles accounted for a pair in the sixth and John Cavalli's homer in the eighth wound up the scoring.
