Farmhand Of The Game:

Pitcher Zach Neal

(6 IP / 6 H / 2 ER / 1 BB / 2 K / Win)

RHP Zach Neal earned the win in his first start for Sacramento, allowing 2 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings of work on Wednesday, while RHP Fernando Nieve tossed 1 2/3 scoreless innings in relief to pick up his 3rd save. Meanwhile, third baseman Alden Carrithers did most of the damage at the plate, posting a single and a home run and driving in all 4 of the River Cats’ runs, while shortstop Tyler Ladendorf singled, doubled and scored a run for Sacramento. In other news, the A’s claimed RHP Marcus Walden off waivers from Toronto and assigned him to Sacramento. Walden made 26 starts for Toronto’s Double-A affiliate last season. And with RHP Matt Buschmann now on the disabled list, Walden could be in the mix for the River Cats’ fifth starter spot along with RHP Jeremy McBryde.
