▪ NaVorro Bowman starts at inside linebacker and makes his presence felt immediately.
Following Saturday’s frustrating 1-1 tie with visiting (and last place) Real Monarchs SLC, Republic FC coach Paul Buckle said his side needs to find its “A” game – and soon.
Pitcher Sean Doolittle would have liked his first outing since May 27 to go a bit more smoothly than the two runs he allowed in two-thirds of an inning during the A’s 8-2 win over Tampa Bay. But for the left-handed reliever, it’s a start.
▪ Kendall Graveman leaves the game against Tampa Bay after six scoreless innings. The pitcher suffers an apparent abdominal injury, and manager Bob Melvin says the right-hander could miss significant time.
Matt Duffy has three hits, but starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong fails to survive the fourth inning as San Francisco falls 5-2 to host Pittsburgh and finishes 2-5 on its trip.
