MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Yoenis Cespedes had his first career four-hit game, including a homer and three RBIs, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Minnesota Twins 9-4 on Sunday to complete a three-game series sweep.
 
Jonny Gomes, Chris Carter and Seth Smith also homered for the A's, who have won nine of 11 to climb back into the wild-card conversation in the American League. Jarrod Parker (6-4) gave up four runs and nine hits in six innings.
 
Brian Duensing (1-6) gave the Twins another dreadful start, lasting just two innings and getting tagged for six runs and seven hits.
 
Gomes finished with three hits and two RBIs.
