Oakland A's pitcher Sean Manaea tosses No Hitter vs. Boston Red Sox

Oakland A's pitcher Sean Manaea tosses No Hitter vs. Boston Red Sox

The A's got their three runs from their top-3 hitters in the lineup. These two teams have gone over the projected total in 8 of the last 11 meetings in Oakland and 10 of the last 14 overall. Drew Pomeranz will make his regular season debut in the opener, and was 17-6 with a 3.32 ERA and 174 strikeouts last season. Eduardo Rodriguez got the win, improving to 2-0 this season after giving up both runs on three hits while walking three and striking out five over six innings of work.

In addition, Chris Sale, David Price, and Rick Porcello have pitched to the level they are capable of.

It's Manaea, though, who's Saturday's star, and deservedly so for quieting a team that was inspiring all kinds of awe in the early going. Between the five starters that were named for Opening Day, they have made 15 starts and allowed just 16 earned runs for a 1.71 ERA which is impressive.




Boston Red Sox vs. The Athletics have scored two runs or less in three of the four starts that he has made this year. While a majority of that production has come from Nunez, the three have still played solid, making their contributions felt on a team missing two of its usual starters.

The Boston Red Sox continue their west coast swing with a matchup against the Oakland A's on Friday night, kicking off a three game Major League Baseball set. Oakland's Matt Olson fielded it and tried to reach out to tag Benintendi but missed him, which put Benintendi on first for Boston's first hit of the game. The task in front of the 26-year-old in native was one that virtually no pitcher has been able to solve this year: the Red Sox' lineup, which came into the game leading the league in runs, batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage and OPS+ and was third in home runs. Despite a slight setback in March, the Red Sox are fully aware of how good Pomeranz can be if he can replicate his performance from past year. Take them to win on the road in Oakland on Saturday night. It's also the best sign yet that Manaea-a highly touted prospect with the Royals and the centerpiece of the deal that sent Ben Zobrist to Kansas City for that team's World Series run in 2015-is coming into his own as Oakland's ace.
