Oakland Athletics outfielder Stephen Piscotty returned to the lineup after the club reinstated him from the bereavement list and made an immediate impact, hitting a solo home run in his first at-bat Tuesday night against the Boston Red Sox.
Piscotty arrived to the A's clubhouse Tuesday afternoon after spending the past four days with his family following the death of his mother, Gretchen, May 6 after a long battle with ALS.
He touched his heart as he crossed the plate. In his first game after Gretchen's death last Wednesday, Piscotty received a standing ovation from the Oakland crowd, which lasted for almost a minute prior to his at-bat. "This was just, 'I love you and thank you.' That's what I did in the box, and that's her way of saying it". He's 1-5 with a 7.60 ERA over seven starts with the A's this season.
Daniel Mengden (3-4) pitched six solid innings for Oakland, scattering eight hits and holding Boston to two runs - one earned - and struck out three.
