Mets 101 Game Preview: Oakland A’s at New York Mets

The New York Mets had one of their best home performances of the season last night, and it came against baseball's best team. The Mets (36-41) slugged four home runs and got a strong pitching performance from Bartolo Colon to blow out the Oakland A's (47-30) 10-1. The two teams will wrap up their brief two game series tonight at Citi Field, with first pitch scheduled for 7:10 pm.

The Mets will send young right hander Zack Wheeler to the hill. Wheeler (3-7, 3.93 ERA) is coming off his best start of the season his last time out, hurling a shutout to beat the Miami Marlins last Thursday. The A's will counter with young left hander Brad Mills (0-0, 4.50 ERA). Mills took a no decision in his last start after allowing two runs in four innings against the Boston Red Sox.
