Highlight: Four relievers Pedro Figueroa, Chris Resop, Evan Scribner and Brian Gordon combined on a five-hit shutout, and Michael Taylor hit a two-run homer to lead the River Cats past Tucson 2-0 Tuesday night at Raley Field.
Gray held out: Sonny Gray did not make his scheduled start Tuesday. He may start Thursday for the A's in place of Jarrod Parker, who was injured Saturday. If Parker makes that start, it's possible Gray could start Saturday at Kansas City.
Emergency start: The left-handed Figueroa started in place of Gray, his first start since 2011 in the rookie Arizona League.
Trio named All-Stars: River Cats second baseman Grant Green, outfielder Michael Choice and Gray were named to the Pacific Coast League team for the Triple-A All-Star Game on July 17 at Aces Ballpark in Reno.
Scoring change: In Monday's game, Green was credited with a hit on a pop fly in short right field that fell after hitting the second baseman's glove. The play was originally ruled an error. As a result, Green extended his hitting streak to 11 games, only to see the streak end Tuesday.
Today: River Cats RHP Arnold Leon (0-0, 0.00 ERA) vs. Tucson RHP Matt Andriese (0-0, 3.60), 7:05 p.m., Raley Field.
