Watch Stephen Piscotty homer in return from bereavement leave

In return from bereavement, A's player hits homer for mom

In Piscotty's first at-bat, he homered over the Green Monster in Boston's Fenway Park. "It felt so good, and coming around third I was immediately thinking of my mom", said Piscotty.

The Athletics outfielder slugged a home run in his first at-bat Tuesday against the Red Sox after being away from the team for four days to attend his mother's funeral. He lost his mother to ALS early last week, and she used to communicate with him by patting her hand on her chest. "Probably Gretchen", Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. Because of the three-hour time difference, Piscotty said he didn't feel that exhausted.

"He wanted to play. The guys just embraced him when he got in the dugout". It was his third home run of the season and put Oakland up 3-0. Blake Treinen finished it off for his eighth save of the season and Oakland improved to 4-1 against Boston this season. "I'm going to keep that with me". Mengden then pitched around Mitch Moreland's leadoff double in the second, but the Red Sox scored an unearned run in the fourth after an error by Matt Chapman put J.D. Martinez at second; he eventually scored on a groundout by Moreland. Oakland had six hits through the first three innings, starting with back-to-back singles by Marcus Semien and Chad Pinder to start the game.
