Left fielder Tyler Ladendorf collected a pair of hits, and shortstop Chad Pinder and center fielder Jaycob Brugman both singled and drove in runs for the Sounds.

Pitcher Dillon Overton

(6 IP / 4 H / 0 ER / 4 BB / 3 K / Win)

LHP Dillon Overton delivered another solid start for the Sounds, throwing 6 shutout innings to earn his 6th win on Friday. And the former 2nd-round draft pick has now notched a nifty 2.05 ERA over his last 5 starts for Nashville. After appearing for Stockton on Tuesday, RHP Liam Hendriks tossed 1 scoreless inning of relief in his first rehab appearance for the Sounds, and RHP Ryan Doolittle got the final six outs to complete the 5-hit shutout. Center fielder Jaycob Brugman had a big night at the plate, belting his 3rd home run for the Sounds while also collecting a pair of doubles and driving in 3 runs. Catcher Bruce Maxwell and shortstop Chad Pinder both homered, doubled and drove in a pair to help Nashville maintain its 5-game lead in the Pacific Coast League American Southern division over rival Round Rock. In other news, Nashville’s Zach Neal and Max Muncy were both recalled by the A’s on Friday, while Oakland starter Jesse Hahn was optioned back to the Sounds. And Beloit starter James Naile was reassigned to Nashville to make Saturday’s start for Daniel Mengden, who is expected to make his major league debut for the A’s on Saturday.

GAME #2

Nashville Sounds          4

Oklahoma City Dodgers  1

WP – Alvarez 1-0 / 0.00

Prospect Of The Game:

Catcher Matt McBride

(2 for 2 / 2 Doubles / Walk / RBI)

After going 4 for 4 with a home run in Nashville’s last game on Tuesday, catcher Matt McBride came back to go 2 for 2 with 2 doubles and a walk to help the Sounds win the second game of Thursday’s doubleheader. And McBride has now failed to record an out in his last 8 plate appearances. Center fielder Jaycob Brugman singled and drove in a pair for the Sounds. RHP Eduard Santos came out of the bullpen to start the second game of the twinbill and performed well, allowing just 1 run while striking out 5 over 3 innings of work. After appearing in two games with Stockton, RHP R.J. Alvarez struck out 3 over 1 2/3 perfect innings of relief in his first rehab appearance for the Sounds, and LHP Patrick Schuster got the final three outs in the 9th to notch his 5th save for Nashville. In other news, the A’s traded Chris Coghlan to the Cubs on Thursday in return for second baseman Arismendy Alcantara, who was assigned to the Sounds. And since Max Muncy did not appear in either game of Thursday’s doubleheader, it seems safe to assume that he may be set to take Coghlan’s roster spot with the A’s.

With LHP Eric Surkamp held out of his scheduled start on Sunday so that he can start for Oakland on Tuesday, RHP James Naile was promoted from Beloit to make the start for the Sounds, and the 23-year-old ended up allowing 3 runs over 5 1/3 innings to earn the win in his Triple-A debut.

Chapman slugged a solo shot with two outs in the top of the 1st to give Midland an early lead and then tagged a 2-run homer in his next trip to the plate in the 4th. Right fielder Tyler Marincov immediately followed that up with his 1st Texas League home run as he and Chapman went back-to-back, and designated hitter John Nogowski then notched his 1st home run since joining the RockHounds in the 5th. Starter Chris Jensen had a solid outing, allowing just 1 run over 5 innings of work to earn his 3rd win, and RHP Ben Bracewell got the final three outs to post his 2nd save for Midland.

Max Muncy: Back in the Bigs

Prospect Of The Game:

First Baseman Rangel Ravelo

(3 for 4 / Home Run / Double / 3 RBIs)

First baseman Rangel Ravelo busted out of a 1 for 21 slump in a big way to help lead the Sounds to victory on Tuesday night. Ravelo ripped a 2-run homer to knock in the go-ahead run for Nashville in the 4th inning, doubled in another run in the 6th, and singled but was left stranded in the 8th. Third baseman Max Muncy led off the 4th inning with his 6th home run to put the Sounds on the board, while right fielder Matt Olson doubled home a pair of runs to tie the game later in the same inning. RHP Henderson Alvarez, making what’s expected to be his second to last rehab start, allowed 3 runs on 4 hits while walking 1 and striking out 3 over 4 innings of work. He threw a total of 79 pitches, 50 for strikes and 29 for balls. RHP Aaron Kurcz, who was promoted to Nashville earlier in the day from Midland, picked up the win despite giving up 2 runs in 2 innings of relief, while RHP Tucker Healy tossed a scoreless 9th for his 1st save. In addition to Kurcz, catcher Bryan Anderson also rejoined to Sounds, while RHP J.B. Wendelken was optioned back to Nashville from Oakland, and the A’s added utility man Tyler Ladendorf and relievers Andrew Triggs and Daniel Coulombe. Sounds starter Eric Surkamp is expected to officially rejoin the A’s roster on Wednesday.
