With one out, a man on third and the game tied 2-2 in the bottom of the 12th inning, third baseman Renato Nunez singled for his third hit of the night to drive home the winning run as the Sounds won in a walk-off on Monday. Nunez also singled in the Sounds’ first run in the 6th inning, while shortstop Chad Pinder doubled twice and scored the winning run, and first baseman Rangel Ravelo and second baseman Joey Wendle had a pair of hits apiece for Nashville. Starter Chris Jensen turned in his strongest start since joining the Sounds, throwing 6 2/3 shutout innings before leaving the game with a slim 1-run lead. Nashville’s bullpen allowed Omaha to come back and tie the game in the 9th, but LHP Patrick Schuster threw 3 1/3 scoreless innings to shut down the Storm Chasers and give the Sounds the chance win it in the 12th and also earned his 1st win of the season along the way. In other news, the A’s claimed RHP Nick Tepesch off waivers from the Dodgers on Monday and designated Sounds LHP Eric Surkamp for assignment. And former Nashville starter Daniel Mengden allowed 2 runs over 7 2/3 innings for Oakland to earn his first major league win as the A’s beat the Giants 8-3 on Monday night.

Prospect Of The Game:

Pitcher Rich Hill

(3 IP / 4 H / 1 ER / 0 BB / 6 K)

 

A’s LHP Rich Hill took the mound in Modesto on Monday for what’s expected to be his only rehab start for Stockton. He struck out 6 batters over 3 scoreless innings before exiting after allowing a leadoff single in the 4th inning, which would ultimately lead to a run that would be charged to the left-hander. Hill did throw a lot of pitches during his brief outing – totaling 66 in Monday’s effort. RHP Heath Fillmyer followed him on the mound and ended up allowing 7 runs, 5 earned, over 5 innings of work to suffer his 5th loss for Stockton. The Ports scored just 1 run on 3 hits on Monday. Left fielder Joe Bennie doubled, and center fielder B.J. Boyd and shortstop Richie Martin both singled in the loss. Meanwhile, RHP Joey Wagman was reassigned to Stockton from the RockHounds on Monday.
