Athletics Haven’t Slowed Down Since the Break

The Oakland Athletics are the hottest team in baseball. They are making a surprising run at the Houston Astros, who sit atop the American League West. The Athletics will try to stay perfect on the home stand and stretch their winning streak to seven straight.

Oakland won the first six games of the homestand. They whipped the Toronto Blue Jays and Detroit Tigers like yard dogs. Oakland won by a combined score of 33-7. They enter the week four games behind the Astros in the AL West.

Oakland is 11-7 in interleague play this season. They split a two-game series in April against the Dodgers.

Manaea has allowed three or fewer earned runs in each of his last 11 starts. He earned a win over Toronto last Wednesday by yielding one run and five hits across six innings. The 26-year-old is holding opponents to a .220 batting average. He is fifth in the AL with a 1.01 WHIP.

Manaea surrendered solo home runs to Chris Taylor and Corey Seager in five innings at Los Angeles on April 10 and was saddled with a loss.

Khris Davis homered in four of the last seven games to bring his season total to 31.

Dodgers in a Dog Fight Atop the NL West

The Dodgers enter the week tied for first in the NL West. They avoided a three-game sweep by the Astros. By doing so they did the Athletics a favor with a 3-2 victory over the Astros on Sunday.

Hill is thriving since the All-Star break. He has given up a total of two earned runs allowed in 19 innings spread over three starts. The 38-year-old added 21 strikeouts in that span. The crafty veteran won the first two starts before settling for a no-decision against Milwaukee on Wednesday.

Hill posted a 2.25 ERA in 14 starts for Oakland in 2016 before being traded to Los Angeles. He is 2-1 with a 3.09 ERA in seven road starts this season.

Yasiel Puig (right oblique) was held out of the lineup on Sunday and is day-to-day.
