Farmhand Of The Game:

Pitcher Bruce Billings

(5 IP / 3 H / 1 ER / 5 BB / 2 K)

 

Starter Bruce Billings had a solid outing for Sacramento, allowing 2 runs, just 1 earned, over 5 innings of work, but he still ended up taking the loss on Saturday. Outfielder Michael Choice had 3 hits, including a pair of doubles, while catcher Derek Norris went 1 for 4 in his first rehab appearance for the River Cats, and shortstop Addison Russell, serving as the designated hitter for the night, went 0 for 3 in his debut for Sacramento. Meanwhile, Susan Slusser reported on Saturday night that the A’s will add infielders Jemile Weeks and Andy Parrino along with LHP Pedro Figueroa to the major league roster when rosters expand on Sunday. She’s also expecting that the A’s will add LHP Tommy Milone and RHP Evan Scribner on Tuesday, and that outfielder Michael Choice is likely to join the major league roster as well.

Farmhand Of The Game:

Second Baseman Jemile Weeks

(2 for 3 / Walk)

 

Starter Bruce Billings had a rough outing for the River Cats, allowing 5 runs on 8 hits over 4 1/3 innings to take the loss on Monday. Second baseman Jemile Weeks had a pair of hits and walked, while outfielder Michael Choice doubled and walked, and third baseman Dusty Coleman went 0 for 4 in his debut after getting called up to take Daric Barton’s place on the River Cats roster. Barton was recalled by the A’s to replace right fielder Josh Reddick, who was placed on the disabled list. RHP Evan Scribner was also recalled by the A’s after the team designated RHP Pat Neshek for assignment.

Outfielder Shane Peterson

(Home Run / 2 Walks / 2 Runs)

 

Starter Bruce Billings had a rough outing for the River Cats, allowing 7 runs on 10 hits over 4 1/3 innings to take his 6th loss on Tuesday. Outfielder Shane Peterson hit his 12th home run, walked twice and scored twice, while designated hitter Jake Goebbert slugged his 2nd home run for Sacramento, and first baseman Anthony Aliotti had 2 hits and drove in a pair of runs for the River Cats. With Derek Norris breaking his toe in Oakland on Tuesday night, it’s possible that one of Sacramento’s catchers, David Freitas or Ryan Ortiz, could soon be seeing time in Oakland.
