Peterson collects first Major League hit

OAKLAND -- Shane Peterson, who was called up Tuesday from Triple-A Sacramento for his Major League debut, drew a second straight start at first base Wednesday. He recorded his first hit, a single to center in the fourth, along with his first RBI and run. Peterson is likely headed back to the minors, as regular first baseman Brandon Moss is expected to come off paternity leave and rejoin the team Friday against Tampa Bay.


"He made a very good impression," A's manager Bob Melvin said of Peterson. "This kid, he's ready to play in the big leagues. It's just not his time right at this minute."
