Scheduled starter Michael Brady was a last-minute scratch, so LHP Felix Doubront, who’s been working in short stints out of the bullpen while making his way back from Tommy John surgery, made the start and allowed 1 run over 2 2/3 innings before giving way to RHP Aaron Kurcz, who threw 3 1/3 scoreless innings in relief to earn his 3rd win. The Chronicle’s Susan Slusser later reported that Brady is set to replace RHP Zach Neal as the long man in the A’s bullpen on Saturday, with Neal heading back to Nashville.
