Coco Crisp went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Mets.

He singled in a run in the second inning and later scored, then homered in the fourth inning to put his club up 7-0 at the time. The blast was Crisp's sixth of the season and he now has 27 RBI along with a .290/.381/.453 slash line and 13 stolen bases.

Coco Crisp smacked a walkoff RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning Saturday afternoon at O.Co Coliseum to lift the Athletics past the Red Sox 2-1.

It was Crisp's only hit in five trips the plate, but it was obviously a big one. The A's got seven shutout innings from starter Jesse Chavez and improved their MLB-best record to 47-28. Oakland's +136 run differential is also by far the highest in the major leagues.

Coco Crisp went 2-for-4 with a walk, double, run scored and RBI on Wednesday in a 7-1 triumph over the Angels.

Crisp missed Tuesday's game due to his nagging neck injury, but he appeared to be just fine this evening while wreaking havoc out of the leadoff spot. Due to a combination of health issues and regression, Crisp won't match his stellar 2013 numbers. That doesn't mean, however, that he's been bad. The man with a sweet name is batting .274/.375/.429 with four homers and 11 steals in 175 at-bats.
