Watch Stephen Piscotty homer in return from bereavement leave

Watch Stephen Piscotty homer in return from bereavement leave”

The Athletics' Stephen Piscotty returned from the bereavement list in a special way on Tuesday. Piscotty's mother, Gretchen, passed away May 7 after a battle with ALS. After he crossed home plate, Piscotty trotted to the dugout, where teammates showered him with cheers and high fives.

Is it dusty in here? Piscotty finished 1 for 4 on the night.

Last week, his first at-bat after his mother's death, Piscotty got a standing ovation from the Coliseum crowd on May 8, and he stepped out and put his hand on his chest. The following day, he explained the significance behind the patting of his chest. "I'm going to keep that with me".

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. The gesture was a tribute to his mother, Gretchen Piscotty, who passed away on May 6 after battling ALS for almost one year.

Ahead by three runs entering the bottom of the ninth, Blake Treinen allowed a run to score, but held on for his eighth save of the season.
