PHOENIX -

Chris Young hit a grand slam and Josh Donaldson homered among his four hits as the Oakland Athletics backed Bartolo Colon with a big offensive performance in a 9-7 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday.

Scott Sizemore had four hits and two RBIs for the A's. Colon gave up three runs and six hits over five innings in his third start and fifth appearance of the spring. He struck out three and walked none.

Colon will sit out the first five games of the season while completing his 50-game suspension for a positive drug test last year.

Brewers starter Chris Narveson served up Young's slam in the fourth. The left-hander allowed six runs on eight hits and five walks in 3 2-3 innings.
