Coco Crisp hit a leadoff homer and finished with four hits, Tommy Milone pitched in at the plate and the Oakland Athletics beat the Milwaukee Brewers 10-2 on Monday night.
The surging A's have won four consecutive games and 15 of 17 to move a season-high 11 over .500 at 35-24.
Milone (6-5) allowed five hits, struck out four and didn't issue a walk in seven strong innings. He retired his first eight batters before pitcher Marco Estrada blooped a two-out single in the third.
Milone also took advantage of a rare chance to bat in an interleague road game, going 2 for 4 with an RBI and two runs scored.
