Pitcher Dillon Overton

(3 IP / 0 H / 0 ER / 0 BB / 3 K)

Led by last year’s 2nd-round draft pick for the A’s, Dillon Overton, some of the A’s most newly-minted pitching prospects combined to shut out Aberdeen on just 3 hits on Tuesday. Overton, who’s working his way back from Tommy John surgery, started the game off by pitching 3 perfect innings while striking out 3 of the minimum 9 batters he faced. This year’s 3rd-round pick, RHP Brett Graves, allowed just 1 hit in 3 shutout innings to earn the win, while this year’s 2nd-round pick, RHP Daniel Gossett, struck out 4 in 2 scoreless innings of relief, and RHP Lee Sosa came on to get the final three outs in the 9th for the Lake Monsters. Left fielder Max Kuhn singled, doubled, walked and drove in 3, while third baseman Jose Brizuela singled, doubled, drove in a run and scored twice, and shortstop Yairo Munoz and designated hitter Seong-min Kim had a pair of hits apiece for Vermont.
