OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Dillon Gee is frustrated, so is manager Terry Collins. And the New York Mets just keep losing.

Gee hasn't been able to get out of the sixth inning in four of his last seven starts, all losses.

It happened again Tuesday night when Coco Crisp hit a tiebreaking three-run triple off Gee in the fourth inning, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Mets 6-2 to snap a five-game losing streak.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Coco Crisp hit a tiebreaking three-run triple in the fourth inning to help Scott Kazmir earn his career-best 14th win, and the Oakland Athletics beat the New York Mets 6-2 on Tuesday night to snap a five-game losing streak.

Coming off a miserable road trip when he went 2-for-23, Crisp grounded out and singled before lining an 0-1 pitch from Mets starter Dillon Gee down the right field line with the bases loaded. It was Crisp's third triple this...

NEW YORK (AP) — David Robertson picked a bad time to have his worst outing in a long while.

Chris Carter snapped a ninth-inning tie with a colossal three-run homer off Robertson that sent the Houston Astros to a 7-4 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

The closer walked consecutive batters and threw seven straight balls before Carter, who struck out in all four previous at-bats, launched a 3-0 pitch into the raised concrete bleachers...

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jon Jay was hit by a pitch from J.J. Hoover with the base-loaded in the ninth inning, lifting the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.

Matt Holliday drew a leadoff walk to start the winning rally. He advanced to third on Matt Adams' single. After Peter Bourjos ran for Holliday, Jhonny Peralta walked to load the bases. Hoover (1-10) then plunked Jay to force in Bourjos with the winning run.
