Star Oakland outfielder Yoenis Cespedes went 1-for-4, driving in a run and scoring once in a rehab appearance with the Sacramento River Cats as they topped the Salt Lake Bees, 6-5, on Thursday.
Cespedes is on the disabled list with a left hand strain. If all goes as planned, he is expected to be activated by the A's on Sunday.
No. 6 A's prospect Sonny Gray (2-1) allowed a run on eight hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings to earn the win. Matt Young drilled a grand slam in the loss.

Charlie Blackmon fell a double short of a cycle and Lars Davis was a home run shy of the feat as Colorado Springs routed Tucson, 13-5. Blackmon finished 3-for-4 with three RBIs and Davis went 3-for-5 while scoring three times.
Drew Pomeranz (3-0) picked up the win for the Sky Sox, yielding just a run on three hits and two walks while striking out six over six frames. Pomeranz has a 2.82 ERA in 22 1/3 innings this year.
MLB.com's fourth-ranked overall prospect Wil Myers brought his hitting streak to nine games and belted his second homer of the year in Durham's 9-7 loss to Toledo.
