LHP Carlos Hernandez earned his 1st win in his 3rd start for Sacramento, allowing 4 runs, just 2 earned, over 6 innings of work on Sunday. Outfielder Michael Taylor collected 3 hits and drove in 2 runs, while designated hitter Michael Choice and first baseman Anthony Aliotti each had 2 hits and drove in a pair of runs for the River Cats. Third baseman Daric Barton left the game in the 3rd inning, presumably just in case Josh Reddick’s sprained wrist lands him on the disabled list and Barton needs to be called upon by the A’s.
