Designated Hitter Matt Chapman

(Home Run / 2 RBIs)

The A’s #1 pick in last year’s draft, Matt Chapman, came to the plate with a man on in the bottom of the 4th inning and Stockton down by a run and slugged his 1st home run of the season to give the Ports a 1-run lead on Wednesday. Before Wednesday, Chapman had gone 1 for 18 in his first 5 games since returning from a knee injury he suffered right before the start of spring training. Third baseman Michael Soto also hit a 2-run shot in the 3rd for Stockton. But unfortunately, the lead that Chapman provided the Ports with wouldn’t last for long. RHP Dylan Covey, who’d given up 4 runs in the 1st, also allowed the tying run in the top of the 5th. Covey ended up allowing 5 runs on 9 hits and 2 walks over 5 innings of work and left with the game a 5-5 tie. RHP Corey Walter tossed a scoreless 6th but loaded the bases in the 7th before giving way to RHP Sam Bragg, who walked in the winning run, giving Walter his 2nd loss for Stockton. In other news, LHP Sean Doolittle is set to join the Ports on Thursday to begin his rehab assignment in Stockton.
