The Nashville Sounds opened a four-game series at Raley Field on Monday. Big deal, you say? The Sounds are the A’s Triple-A affiliate this season. The River Cats, who held that position for their first 15 seasons, switched their affiliation to the Giants during the offseason. This week’s games are the first between the teams since the switch.
A home run by Milwaukee’s Khris Davis is allowed following a video review, but the Giants later erased a three-run deficit with a seven-run rally in the sixth inning on the way to an 8-4 victory, their ninth in 11 games.
Jesse Hahn’s four-hit shutout of the Detroit Tigers was his first career complete game. “I had so much adrenaline pumping through my veins in the ninth,” Hahn said of the 4-0 victory. “The ninth inning’s been foreign to me. So it’s good to actually feel it.”
Three Nashville pitchers combine on a four-hitter as the Sounds shut out the River Cats 5-0 at Raley Field. The River Cats had just six baserunners and suffered their sixth loss in a row.
James Harden scored a playoff-career-high 45 points, and Houston led from the start in a 128-115 win over the Warriors.
Ray McDonald’s career with the Chicago Bears ends before it begins. The former 49ers defensive end was released following his arrest Monday, his third legal issue in less than a year. McDonald was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence and child endangerment, according to the Santa Clara Police Department. The Bears signed McDonald in March.
