Here’s a brief look at what happened down on the farm for the A’s affiliates:
As noted Friday, the RiverCats lost 5-1 to Portland (Padres) despite a strong start by Vin Mazzaro.
Sean Gallagher makes his first start for the RiverCats Saturday night against Las Vegas (Blue Jays).
The Rockhounds got three hits from Tommy Everidge, two hits from Chris Carter (.328) and a homer from Danny Putnam in their 9-3 victory over San Antonio (Padres).
STOCKTON (High Single-A)
Catcher Raul Padron now has six RBI in just three games for the Ports, but that was about the only bright spot in Stockton’s 4-2 loss to Bakersfield (Rangers) on Friday.
KANE COUNTY (Low Single-A)
Lefty Pedro Figueroa was dominant in the Cougars’ 8-1 win over Burlington (Royals). The 23-year-old threw seven shutout innings, allowing five hits, no walks and striking out nine.
Kane County’s offense was boosted by home runs from Jason Christian, Grant Desme and catcher Juan Nunez.
