Jeff Samardzija was torched, allowing seven earned runs in just 3.2 innings, as the A's lost 8-5 to split the two-game series with the Mets.
Josh Donaldson is out of the starting lineup for the first time since the All-Star break, and A’s manager Bob Melvin said it was time to give his All-Star third baseman a rest.
The A's ended their five-game losing streak in Game 1, but they'll be without All-Star Josh Donaldson as they seek a short series sweep.
