According to the MLA Handbook, if you want to cite multiple sources in one in-text citation you will separate the citations with a semi-colon. See page 126 for more information. 

General Format

(AuthorLastNameA page#; AuthorLastNameB page#).


(AuthorLastNameA page#; AuthorLastNameB and AuthorLastName C page#).


For Example

(Goulimari 125; Russell and Winterbottom 11).
