3-Run Double Lifts A’s Over Mets

NEW YORK (CBS/AP) — Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run double, slumping Brandon Moss had a two-run homer and the Oakland Athletics jumped all over an ineffective Zack Wheeler in an 8-5 win over the New York Mets on Wednesday night.

Coco Crisp homered and had three hits as the AL West leaders built an eight-run cushion for Brad Mills, who took a shutout into the seventh inning for his first major league victory in almost two years.

Oakland rebounded from its most lopsided loss of the season to split the two-game interleague series, boosting the best record in baseball to 48-30.

Pinch-hitter Lucas Duda chased Mills with a three-run homer in the seventh. Chris Young connected for a two-run shot in the eighth, his third home run in two nights.

Curtis Granderson added three hits for the Mets, who had won three straight and five of six.
