Takes no-decision Manaea did not factor into the decision during Wednesday's win over the Dodgers, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four across six innings.
Impact The long ball was the enemy of the night for Manaea, who silenced the Dodgers until the third inning, when he released a two-run homer to Max Muncy. He also gave up a solo blast to Cody Bellinger in the seventh frame, which would be his final batter of the night. Manea threw a season-high 91 pitches, including 59 for strikes. The 28-year-old, who has been named a likely candidate to start the Athletics' first playoff game next week, has put together a 4.50 ERA and 1.20 WHIP across 12 appearances (11 starts) in the regular season. Across his last six starts, however, the southpaw has compiled a solid 2.65 ERA.
