Final Score: Athletics 6, Mets 2—Sleepwalking in Oakland

The Mets could not muster much as they fell to the A's in the first of two games in Oakland.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets did not appear to have any interest in winning tonight's ballgame and were thoroughly beaten by the Oakland Athletics by a score of 6-2. Scott Kazmir was sharp, while Dillon Gee was not.

Travis d'Arnaud put the Mets ahead 1-0 on a solo bomb in the top of the fourth, but the lead was extremely short lived. Gee, after loading the bases but escaping unscathed in the third, loaded the bases again in the fourth and could not keep the A's off the board. Alberto Callaspo plated the first run with a bases loaded sacrifice fly, and then after Eric Sogard walked to re-load the bases, Coco Crisp dealt the death blow with a bases clearing triple to make the game 4-1.

The Mets managed another run in the seventh off an Anthony Recker RBI double to make it 4-2, but Gonzalez German came out in the eighth and served up a two run moonshot to Josh Reddick to put any hopes of a rally in the ninth to bed.
