Prospect Of The Game:

On a day in which all four A’s affiliates lost, RockHounds designated hitter Tyler Marincov may have turned in the best performance of the day. The 24-year-old collected 3 hits, including his 2nd home run for the Hounds and his 11th on the season, and he now trails just teammate Matt Chapman, and is tied with Nashville’s Renato Nunez, in that category among all A’s minor leaguers. And speaking of Chapman, he slugged his league-leading 14th home run, a 2-run shot, in the 6th on Sunday. Second baseman Wade Kirkland singled, doubled and walked, while left fielder J.P. Sportman singled and scored and drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. Starter Chris Jensen allowed 5 runs, 3 earned, over 6 innings of work, while RHP Ben Bracewell was charged with the winning run in the top of the 9th to take the loss for Midland.
