On a night filled with solid pitching performances throughout the A’s system, the best outing of the night came in what would prove to be a losing effort. RHP Kyle Friedrichs allowed just 2 hits over 6 shutout innings for Stockton and left the game with the lead. But LHP Zack Erwin, making his first relief appearance this season, surrendered 6 runs, 5 earned, in 2 2/3 innings of work to take his 10th loss on Wednesday. First baseman John Nogowski singled, doubled and drove in the Ports’ first run in the 2nd inning, while center fielder James Harris homered for Stockton’s second run in the 6th.
