Parra off to solid Cactus League start

Unlike Yovani Gallardo the day before, Brewers lefty Manny Parra cruised through his first Cactus League start.

Parra faced seven batters in two scoreless innings, holding the A’s to one hit with one strikeout. Mark DiFelice followed and posted a similar line (minus the strikeout) and Omar Aguilar worked a scoreless inning with one hit to keep the A’s scoreless through the end of the fifth inning.

A’s pitchers were just as sharp, holding the Brewers hitless until Craig Counsell’s two-out single in the fifth inning. Corey Hart snapped the scoreless tie with an RBI single in the sixth, but the A’s got the run back against R.J. Swindle in the bottom of the inning.

Tied at 1 going to the seventh…

Thanks for taking the time to write on this blog. I’ve heard Escobar has been playing quite well. I know it’s early but from what you’ve seen do you think Escobar is versatile enough to backup 2nd and 3rd as well as shortstop? Or is this not a possibility.
