The Oakland Athletics got back to their winning ways today, stomping on the New York Mets 8-5 at Citi Field in New York. The A’s got on the board early, tacking on two runs on a moon-shot two-run homer from Brandon Belt, and then again in the second with a three-run double from Yoenis Cespedes. Oakland hit Mets righty Zack Wheeler hard, scoring six runs off of him over his two innings of work, and dealing him is eighth loss on the year. The A’s also received a quality start from Brad Mills, who made just his second appearance of the year, but threw six quality innings, allowing nine hits and striking out four.

There was also some big news that came out of the front office today from the Athletics, as they signed a new lease with the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority, agreeing to stay at the O.Co Coliseum for ten more years. Much was made of the idea of the idea of the A’s joining the bandwagon that is California sports teams who are changing venues, but those thoughts can be put to rest with the A’s signing this new contract. The Coliseum is home to both the Oakland A’s and the Oakland Raiders, and shares parking facilities with the Oracle Arena, which is currently, home to the Golden State Warriors.
