Mets-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- The Oakland Athletics ended their longest stretch of futility this season in their return home, but a matchup with red-hot Zack Wheeler may hinder their attempt to build on the conclusion to that lengthy skid.

Oakland, though, dealt the New York Mets right-hander his most recent loss and will attempt to end his win streak at five on Wednesday.

The A's (74-51) had dropped five in a row heading into Tuesday's opener of a two-game set with New York (59-68) but hung on for a 6-2 victory, their 35th in the last 47 home games. They scored four runs in the fourth inning, with Coco Crisp tripling home three to match a season high for RBIs.
