RHP Jonathan Joseph turned in his second straight strong start on Saturday, allowing 5 hits while striking out 5 over 7 shutout innings to earn his 6th win for the RockHounds.

After Joseph exited, RHP Tucker Healy pitched a perfect 8th, and RHP Ryan Dull got the final three outs in the 9th to notch his 8th save and complete the 5-hit shutout on Saturday.

And with Matt Olson and Renato Nunez set to participate in the Futures Game, infielder Rangel Ravelo was assigned to Midland on Saturday and went 0 for 3 with a walk in his RockHounds debut.

(Home Run / 3 RBIs)

With two on, two outs and the game tied in the bottom of the 7th, third baseman Matt Chapman crushed a 3-run homer over the left field fence to provide the Ports with all they would need to win their seventh straight on Friday. Chapman’s 9 home runs now tie him for second-most in the A’s minor league system, even though he’s appeared in just 39 games after getting off to a late start this season due to a knee injury. Center fielder Brett Vertigan belted his 3rd home run in the 1st, while right fielder Tyler Marincov homered for the 7th time this season in the 2nd. Second baseman Melvin Mercedes drew a pair of walks and doubled in 2 runs, including the tying run, in the 7th, while shortstop Franklin Barreto singled and doubled for Stockton. Starter Dylan Covey was solid, allowing just 1 run while striking out 6 over 6 innings of work and left the game with a 1-run lead. But Sam Bragg gave up 3 unearned runs in the top of the 7th with the help of 3 errors by first baseman John Nogowski, catcher Nick Rickles and shortstop Franklin Barreto. LHP Omar Duran picked up the win despite giving up 1 run in 1 1/3 innings of relief, and RHP Ben Bracewell got the final four outs to post his 3rd save for the Ports.

Although outfielder Justin Higley had the big hit for Beloit with his RBI triple to unlock the tie in the top of the 12th, first baseman Sandber Pimentel accounted for two of the Snappers’ four runs with his 2-run homer in the 1st. It made Pimentel the A’s first minor leaguer to reach 10 home runs this season and put him two ahead of his nearest competitor, Stockton third baseman Matt Chapman, who has 8. Second baseman Trent Gilbert homered in the 3rd and doubled in the 11th, while starter Daniel Gossett allowed 3 runs, 2 earned, over 5 innings of work and left with the game tied – and the game remained tied until Higley’s triple in the top of the 12th. Relievers Kevin Johnson, Jose Torres and Rob Huber combined to throw 7 scoreless innings, with Huber picking up his 2nd win for the Snappers.

In the completion of a game suspended on April 27 due to rain, the Sounds were undone by a 4-run 7th inning and ended up suffering a 4-3 loss on Monday. RHP Arnold Leon started the game in April by throwing 3 2/3 shutout innings and picked up right where he left off on Monday by tossing 3 more scoreless innings before loading the bases with two outs in the bottom of the 7th. RHP Dan Otero was then summoned to make his debut for the Sounds and promptly surrendered three straight singles to bring home 4 runs. Leon ended up being charged with 3 runs in 6 2/3 innings to take the loss, while Otero was charged with 1 run on 5 hits in just 1 1/3 innings of relief. Outfielder Kent Matthes collected 3 hits, including a double, and drove in 2 of Nashville’s 3 runs, while second baseman Joey Wendle drove in the Sounds’ only other run, and shortstop Niuman Romero and outfielder Jason Pridie had a pair of hits apiece in the loss.

RHP Chris Bassitt turned in his most impressive start this season for the Sounds, allowing just 1 unearned run on 5 hits while walking none and striking out 11 over 6 innings of work on Wednesday. And over his last two starts, Bassitt has now allowed just 1 earned run in 11 2/3 innings for Nashville. But the Sounds failed to score until the 7th inning, when shortstop Ryan Roberts singled in a pair of runs to give Nashville the lead. Third baseman Matt Carson doubled in a run in the 9th, while outfielder Kent Matthes singled, tripled and walked, and second baseman Joey Wendle had a pair of singles and drove in a run for the Sounds. LHP Jose Paterson tossed a scoreless 7th to pick up his 1st win for Nashville, while RHP Brock Huntzinger struck out the side in the 8th, and RHP R.J. Alvarez got the final three outs in the 9th to close things out for the Sounds. And with Drew Pomeranz returning from the disabled list for the A’s, RHP Arnold Leon was optioned back to Nashville on Wednesday.
