But in his first at-bat back with the team after her celebration of life, Piscotty launched a solo home run off Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez and touched his heart after he crossed home plate.

Piscotty arrived to the A's clubhouse Tuesday morning after spending the past four days with his family following the death of his mother, Gretchen, May 6 after a long battle with ALS.

As he trotted toward home plate, Oakland Athletics outfielder Stephen Piscotty tapped his chest and looked up at the sky.
