After a late game collapse on the road in Oakland, the Mets looked to rebound in their short series with the Athletics.

Top of the 3rd, Eric Campbell hits a solo home run to center field off Oakland stud Jeff Samardzija, his 3rd homer of the year and it's 1-0 Mets.

Later in the inning, Mets up 2-0, Lucas Duda sends this one deep to center for the three run shot, Samardzia just getting roughed up, 5-0 Mets.

Bottom of the 4th, Mets up 7-2 with Oakland looking to get something started, Andy Parrino grounds one to right toward Daniel Murphy but he can't get a handle on it, two runs score.

But it wasn't enough, Mets go on to win 8-5.
