Interleague Preview from The Sports Network



Wednesday, June 25 (All times Eastern)

Oakland Athletics (47-30) at New York Mets (36-41), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Oakland - Brad Mills (0-0, 4.50) NY Mets - Zack Wheeler (3-7, 3.93)

(SportsNetwork.com) - Coming off his first career shutout, Zack Wheeler has an opportunity to pitch the Mets to their first four-game winning streak of the season when they conclude a short two-game series against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday at Citi Field.

Wheeler had given up four runs in consecutive losses to San Francisco and San Diego in his previous two starts before bouncing back in a big way against the Marlins last Thursday in a 1-0 win. He struck out eight, yielding just three hits and a walk.

Now, the 24-year-old right-hander has a chance to help the Mets post their first four-game winning streak since July 7-10, 2013. He has never faced the A's.

Lefty Brad Mills, who was acquired June 17 from Milwaukee, starts tonight's game for the Athletics. His first start in an A's uniform came Friday when he allowed four hits and three runs -- two earned -- over four innings of a no- decision against the Red Sox.

Prior to that start, Mills spent the entire season at Triple-A Nashville where he was 4-2 with a 1.56 ERA in 14 games, including 12 starts. He has never faced the Mets in his career, but is 0-1 with a 14.09 ERA in two career interleague starts. Both came in 2009 with Toronto against Philadelphia and they were the first two starts of his career.

Chris Young slammed a pair of solo home runs and scored three times, as the Mets routed Oakland by a 10-1 count on Tuesday.

"As a team you try to feed off momentum," Young said. "It was nice to see everybody clicking on all cylinders."

Travis d'Arnaud clubbed a three-run shot, while Curtis Granderson added a two- run blast and drove in three for the Mets.

Bartolo Colon (8-5) scattered four hits and one run while striking out eight over eight strong innings against the team he pitched for the previous two seasons.

Yoenis Cespedes knocked in the lone run for the Athletics, who have lost two in a row following a five-game win streak.

Scott Kazmir (9-3) was punctured for eight hits and seven runs over just three full frames in defeat.

"It's almost shocking to see him give up some runs," A's manager Bob Melvin said. "He just got some balls up and they didn't miss 'em. The wind was blowing out to left and they got some balls in the air and took advantage of it."

The Mets have beaten the A's in seven of the last eight encounters.
