SEATTLE (AP) -- Danny Valencia homered and Stephen Vogt doubled twice in Oakland's seven-run fifth inning, and the Athletics climbed out of a big hole against Hisashi Iwakuma for an 11-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Monday night.

Josh Reddick also went deep and drove in three runs for the A's, who rallied after starter Felix Doubront exited early with a bruised foot.

Oakland trailed 5-0 in the fifth after Iwakuma (5-3), who tossed a no-hitter Aug. 12 at Safeco Field against Baltimore, allowed just one single through four innings.

Vogt got the outburst started with a leadoff double. Two outs later, Billy Burns and Mark Canha connected on consecutive two-run doubles to make it 5-4.

Reddick tied it with an infield single and Valencia hit his 12th home run, bouncing it off the top of the left-center wall.

Vogt doubled again before Brett Lawrie lined out to left field, finally ending the inning.
