Final Score: Oakland 10, Milwaukee 2
MILWAUKEE, WI (WSAU-TSN) - Coco Crisp finished 4-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs run scored and Brandon Moss also hit a solo shot as the Oakland Athletics crushed the Milwaukee Brewers, 10-2, in the opener of a three-game interleague series at Miller Park.
In the first meeting in Milwaukee between the clubs since 1997 -- the first year of interleague play -- it was the Athletics who jumped out to an 8-2 lead through five frames and never looked back.
John Jaso had three hits and drove in two runs, while five other players drove in at least one run for the Athletics, who have won four straight and 15 of 17 overall. Tommy Milone (6-5) allowed both runs on five hits over seven innings and struck out four in the victory.
Rickie Weeks' two-run homer in the fifth accounted for Milwaukee's offense. Weeks appeared to homer again in the seventh, but after video review, the hit was ruled a triple after replay showed the ball did not break the barrier of the outfield wall.
Marco Estrada (4-4) was charged for five runs on nine hits over four-plus frames to absorb the loss.
