The APA Publication Manual p.176, section 6.14 Authors with the same surname states:

 

If a reference list includes publications by two or more primary authors with the same surname, include the first author’s initials in all text citations, even if the year of publication differs. Initials help the reader to avoid confusion within the text and to locate the entry in the list of references.
