LIVERPOOL, England -- Ki Sung-Yeungs first-half penalty gave last-place Sunderland a surprise 1-0 win at 10-man Everton on Thursday after goalkeeper Tim Howard was sent off for bringing down the South Korea midfielder. Ki, who is on loan from Swansea, darted into the box midway through the first half and was tackled by Howard, who was given a straight red card. The midfielder then converted the 25th-minute spot kick to give Sunderland its first away win of the season and a much-needed boost in its fight to escape the relegation zone. Gus Poyets team remains bottom, three points from safety. Everton brought on Ross Barkley as a substitute and piled on the pressure after the break but could not find an equalizer, with Sunderland goalkeeper Vito Mannone pulling off several impressive saves. Everton is fifth after only its second loss of the season, five points off the league lead. Howard saved a shot by Jack Colback shortly before the incident that led to his sending off. Howard opted for a short goal-kick to Leon Osman, who couldnt control it and Ki stole the ball and tried to go around Howard but was fouled by the goalkeeper. Ki, who also netted the winning goal against Chelsea in the League Cup quarterfinals, then made no mistake in firing the penalty in past substitute goalkeeper Joel Robles. Robles looked shaky as he fumbled Ondrej Celustkas drive in the 36th minute but did well to block the follow-up by Sebastian Larsson and from the resulting corner, Ki miscued wildly when trying to shoot. After the break, Everton began to apply some pressure but Mannone made a decent parry to keep out Phil Jagielkas header and got his hands on Romelu Lukakus attempt at a rebound shot. Lukaku then saw Mannone get down to claim his drilled shot from outside the box, before Barkley - who netted so spectacularly in the previous game against Swansea - sent another ambitious effort too high. Mannone comfortably dealt with further shots from Lukaku and Barkley, then produced a delightful save to push behind a rising drive from Bryan Oviedo.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Adam Dunn is in a pennant race at last, and what an impression he made on his new team as the September stretch run began. Dunn provided instant pop for the struggling Athletics, hitting a towering, two-run homer in his debut at-bat for Oakland to highlight a 6-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday in a matchup of playoff contenders. "I can speak pretty passionately about it, these chances dont come around very often, especially for some of us," said the 34-year-old Dunn, who has never played in the post-season. "Were going to take full advantage." Acquired a day earlier in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, the 6-foot-6, 285-pound Dunn immediately became an imposing presence in the middle of Oaklands order. Dunn is the 12th player in Oakland history to homer in his first at-bat with the team. A 14th-year major leaguer, Dunn homered during a five-run first inning. His drive was a welcome sight for a team that just got swept in a four-game series by the AL West-leading Los Angeles Angels and was shut out for 29 straight innings. "Thats the most excited, anxious, probably call it a little nervous, than Ive been in a long time," said Dunn, who was thrown off by the celebratory tunnel formed by teammates in the dugout. The As broke loose a day after manager Bob Melvin let them have it in a closed-door team meeting. He called his teams play "embarrassing and "pathetic" after the As totalled just four runs in the sweep at Anaheim. "They ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown and the game was over," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "It wasnt our day." Dunn went 2 for 3 batting cleanup as the designated hitter. He provided a nice lift for an Oakland offence that has struggled since dealing Yoenis Cespedes to Boston for Jon Lester on July 31. With 461 career home runs, Dunn tied Red Sox star David Ortiz for 35th place on the all-time list. Dunn quickly staked Jason Hammel (2-5) to a lead. Hammel also started the season in Chicago, and was traded by the Cubs in July. "It had a little bit of a storybook-type theme," Melvin said of Dunns debut. "Weve really been lacking early energy, runs, he comes up to the plate and youre thinking to yourself, Boy, wouldnt it be great? And he delivers..dddddddddddd. You got goosebumps. It was awesome." Hammel allowed three hits and struck out five in eight innings to end a three-start winless stretch. It was just his second win since joining the As from the Cubs on July 4. Another recent acquisition, Geovany Soto, added a two-run single with two outs in the first that chased Chris Young (12-7) for the shortest start of his career. A sellout crowd of 36,067 saw the As win after a stretch in which they lost five of six. "Thats the best crowd Ive ever played with," Dunn said. "Im serious. Its unbelievable. If its like that every night here, its going to be a fun little ride." Brad Miller homered leading off the sixth for Seattle, which came into the series opener as the American Leagues top road team. Robinson Canos 21-game hitting streak against the As ended. It dated to Sept. 22, 2012. TRAINERS ROOM Mariners: OF Michael Saunders, on the disabled list since July 11 with a strained left oblique, reported to Arizona to work on strengthening and get some at-bats in simulated games before the club determines the next step in his rehab. Athletics: CF Coco Crisp will have more trigger-point injections for neck stiffness after colliding with the outfield wall Friday. He hit batting practice right-handed. C John Jaso (concussion) swung in the indoor cage and hopes to hit outside Tuesday. UP NEXT Mariners: LHP James Paxton (4-1, 1.83) makes his first career appearance against the As as he looks to win his second straight start. Paxton is 7-1 with a 1.71 ERA in 11 career starts. Athletics: RHP Sonny Gray (13-7, 3.03) is 4-0 with a 1.10 ERA in his first five starts against Seattle, his most victories against any team. ROSTER MOVES Mariners: Placed 1B-DH Jesus Montero on the suspended list. The 24-year-old Montero was recalled from his rehabilitation assignment Friday following a verbal altercation with a Mariners scout at a Class A Northwest League game. ... September call-up RHP Carson Smith made his major league debut in the eighth. He threw two pitches and retired Josh Donaldson on a grounder.
