After homering twice in his second rehab game for the Stockton Ports, Coco Crisp has taken a step back in the box score in his last two rehab stints.
Crisp, 35, went 0-for-4 while leading off as Stockton's designated hitter vs. the San Jose Giants on Friday. The Giants defeated the Ports, 1-0.
In his recent rehab with the Ports, Crisp is now 4-for-14 in four games for a solid .286 batting average. He's also added two home runs and three RBI, all hit in one game.
Pitching for the Ports on Friday night, was Daniel Mengden, who was a key prospect the A's acquired in their trade with the Astros for Scott Kazmir.
Mengden, 22, was dominant all night except for a solo home run from Brian Ragira. For the night, the right-hander threw seven innings while only yielding two hits and struck out five batters with the only run he gave up being that long ball.
For the season, Mengden is now 1-1 with the Ports with a 1.50 ERA, and 7-3 overall with a 3.24 ERA.
