Stephen Piscotty to honor late mother with special gesture following HRs

Stephen Piscotty to honor late mother with special gesture following HRs

The Athletics' Stephen Piscotty returned from the bereavement list in a special way on Tuesday.

Piscotty was away from the team for the past four games while tending to the loss of his mother from ALS.

In his first at-bat of the game in the top of the second, Piscotty belted a solo home run over the Green Monster at Fenway Park.

Is it dusty in here? Piscotty, who said he still felt like he was on West Coast time, declined the option.

Wilfried Zaha expected to stay at Crystal Palace despite speculation - Roy Hodgson
Losing the first seven games without scoring a goal but still surviving was Palace's version of Manchester City's 100 points. Earlier this week, Zaha was named the Premier League's Player of the Month for April.

"He wanted to play".

Daniel Mengden started for Oakland and turned in a terrific performance, particularly considering that Boston is averaging 6.7 runs per game at home and hitting.288, both major-league bests. "Probably Gretchen ... It was like a walkoff". Piscotty's homer put Oakland ahead 3-0. "The guys just embraced him when he got in the dugout".

Graveman, called up last Friday, earned his first win of the year in a solid start against the Yankees and was scheduled to start Wednesday against the Red Sox. "I put my hand over my chest like she would do, and that's kind of going to be my thing going forward". Blake Treinen finished it off for his eighth save of the season and Oakland improved to 4-1 against Boston this season. But the A's came out fully ready to go: Marcus Semien and Chad Pinder opened the game with base hits and with two outs, Chapman doubled them in.
