(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.

Saturday, April 12th: Ports Fall despite Pinder’s Big Bat while Cats & Hounds Win and Snappers Go Down to Defeat

Second Baseman Chad Pinder

(4 for 4 / 2 Home Runs / 3 RBIs)

Through the first week and a half of the minor league season, Stockton’s talented young lineup has been living up to its hype and the team currently leads the California League in hits, doubles, home runs and total bases. Over the last 3 games, the A’s third pick in last year’s draft, infielder Chad Pinder, has been the team’s hottest hitter, going 10 for 15 with 3 doubles and 4 home runs. After homering in Thursday’s and Friday’s games, Pinder followed that up by going 4 for 4 with 2 home runs in Saturday’s contest, and he currently leads the California League in home runs with 5 after the team’s first 10 games.

Unfortunately, the Ports came up short on Saturday. Starter Seth Streich allowed 3 runs on 7 hits over 5 innings to take the loss, while RHP Jonathan Joseph gave up 4 runs in 2 innings of relief, and LHP Omar Duran tossed 2 scoreless innings in his return from the disabled list. Duran took the roster spot of RHP Michael Ynoa, who was placed on the DL with a bicep strain.

After Saturday’s big game, regarding his current hot streak, Pinder told A’s Farm: “I’ve just been trying to stay within myself. [Hitting coach] Brian McArn and I have been doing a few drills to get my swing going in the right path. And I would honestly say that with our lineup, with all the talent, it helps me out getting pitches to hit. We have so many talented hitters, they can’t pitch around anyone really. So I’m very lucky to have such great talent around me on any given night.”

First Baseman Nate Freiman

(Grand Slam)

First baseman Nate Freiman had a big night in Sacramento’s home opener on Friday. With the River Cats down by 3 runs in the bottom of the 8th inning and the bases loaded, Freiman slugged a grand slam to lead Sacramento to victory in front of the hometown fans. Designated hitter Jake Goebbert and outfielder Shane Peterson each had a pair of hits and drove in a run for the River Cats. RHP Matt Buschmann was a little shaky in his second start for Sacramento, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits over just 3 1/3 innings, while RHP Jose Flores struck out 5 in 2 2/3 scoreless innings of relief. And despite giving up 2 runs in the top of the 8th, LHP Joe Savery ended up walking away with the win after Freiman’s big blow, while RHP Fernando Nieve picked up the save after tossing a scoreless 9th for the Cats.

Second Baseman Chad Pinder

(Home Run / 2 Doubles / 2 RBIs)

It was a big night for Stockton second baseman Chad Pinder, who played a key role in the Ports’ 18-inning win on Thursday night. Last year’s 3rd overall draft pick for the A’s hit a 2-run homer in the 5th inning to tie the game, and doubled to lead off the bottom of the 18th and ultimately scored the winning run when outfielder Billy McKinney singled to bring him home from second and finally bring an end to the 5 hour and 27 minute home opener for Stockton on Thursday. McKinney had previously struck out 3 times in the game, as did designated hitter Ryon Healy, who went 0 for 8. Catcher Bruce Maxwell collected 3 hits, while first baseman Matt Olson singled, doubled and walked twice, third baseman Renato Nunez hit his second homer in as many games to put the Ports on the board in the 1st, and outfielder Bobby Crocker homered in the 9th to send the contest to extra innings. RHP Manny Correa started the game and allowed 4 runs in 6 innings of work, while RHP Nolan Sanburn surrendered 1 run in 2 innings of relief, RHPs Tucker Healy and Kris Hall each tossed 2 scoreless innings, converted outfielder Jeremy Barfield struck out 5 in 3 scoreless innings in his third pitching appearance for the Ports. Infielder Wade Kirkland came in to toss a scoreless 16th and 17th and outfielder Dusty Robinson, who’d doubled twice and driven in a run, pitched a scoreless 18th inning to earn the win.

Farmhand Of The Game:

Pitcher Bobby Wahl

(5 IP / 7 H / 1 ER / 1 BB / 7 K)

RHP Bobby Wahl, the A’s 5th-round pick in last year’s draft, was much more impressive in his second start for the Snappers, allowing just 1 run while striking out 7 in 5 innings of work on Wednesday. And when he left the mound after the bottom of the 5th inning, the game was tied. The 22-year-old was replaced by last year’s 18th-round pick, RHP Sam Bragg, who was equally impressive, allowing 1 run on just 1 hit while striking out 4 in 3 innings of relief to earn the win, while RHP Lee Sosa got the final 3 outs for his 1st save. Outfielder Herschel “Boog” Powell had a pair of hits and drove in a run, while outfielder Tyler Marincov singled, walked twice and scored twice, and shortstop Luis Baez, who entered the game when Chih-Fang Pan exited after the top of the 1st (presumably due to injury) doubled and drove in a run for the Snappers.
