The body of a motorcyclist who fell off the Antioch Bridge six days ago has been found.
Contra Costa Sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said the body of 26-year-old Dylan Rath was found Saturday about a half-mile southeast of the bridge.
Rath fell into the San Joaquin River on April 12 after his Harley Davidson collided with a Honda Civic on the bridge.
The Contra Costa Times says (http://bayareane.ws/1Q3wnYC ) volunteer boaters have been looking for Rath after searches led by the Coast Guard and the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department turned up nothing.
Yordano Ventura had just served up a three-run homer to Oakland's Josh Reddick when Brett Lawrie stepped into the batter's box with the bases empty Saturday night.
Ventura refused to take any questions about the incident during the A's five-run fourth inning.
When asked whether Ventura thought he might be suspended, fellow pitcher Jeremy Guthrie — serving as a translator — replied: "I don't think we need to answer that."
Plate umpire Jim Joyce immediately tossed Ventura after the beaning, and the rest of the umpires moved quickly to keep the teams from throwing any punches.
Stephen Vogt and former Royals designated hitter Billy Butler also drove in a run during Oakland's big inning, and Jesse Hahn (1-1) scattered three hits and a walk over 5 1-3 innings before leaving with a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand.
Jesse Chavez then picked him up with 3 2-3 innings for the save, completing the fifth shutout by Oakland in its first 12 games.
All-Star closer Greg Holland was placed on the 15-day disabled list prior to the game with a strained right pectoral muscle that has been bothering him for the last week.
Holland already has four saves, and has not allowed a hit in four scoreless innings.
