A's Manaea cools red-hot Red Sox with no-no

A's lefty Sean Manaea pitched the first no-hitter against Boston in 25 years, with an overturned call preserving the gem Saturday night in Oakland's 3-0 win over the sizzling Red Sox.

In his stunning no-hitter against the Red Sox, Oakland left-hander Sean Manaea joined some pretty exclusive company. The only Athletics pitchers with 10+ strikeouts in a no-hitter: Catfish Hunter, Dave Stewart and, now, Sean Manaea.

Sean Manaea? Sean Manaea! The first no-hitter of the 2018 season has come from a very unexpected place as the A's lefty outdueled Chris Sale and shut down the best team in the majors for Oakland's first no-hitter since Dallas Braden's 2010 perfect game.

A no-hit bid with Chris Sale on the mound is always a possibility — but tonight in Oakland, it's been the other guy on the mound putting up zeroes as Sean Manaea has held the Red Sox hitless through 8 innings. How surprising is this no-hit bid? Well, the Oakland lefty was just one-year-old last time Boston was no-hit, in 1993.

Oakland A's starter Sean Manaea is deep in a very unexpected no-hit bid against the Red Sox. If he can get the final 3 outs, it will be Oakland's first no-hitter since Dallas Braden's perfect game in May of 2010. Boston hasn't been no-hit since 1993.

Betts, Benintendi lead sizzling Red Sox past Angels, 8-2

Mookie Betts hit his second leadoff homer in three games, Andrew Benintendi homered and drove in three runs and the Boston Red Sox completed a dominant sweep of the AL West-leading Los Angeles Angels with an 8-2 victory Thursday night.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Red Sox sweep the Angels by a combined score of 27-3. They're the first team to start 16-2 since the 1987 Brewers, even though their starting middle infield is on the disabled list.

Andrelton Simmons shows, once again, why nobody does it better. Dives to his left and glove-flips to second to start an inning-ending 6-4-3 double play. Great turn by Ian Kinsler to get Eduardo Nunez, who is not slow.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

OK, it's only the 18th game for Boston, but Mookie Betts is at .400/.493/.817 after hitting his second leadoff home run of the series against the Angels and that's an awesome line. He already has 21 runs, tied with Johnny Pesky (1950) and Ted Williams (1942) for most by a Red Sox player through 18 games.

The Red Sox in Anaheim: 10 home runs before the first out of the 19th inning.

Shohei Ohtani will bat sixth, higher than he ever has, two days after exiting his start with a blister, which doesn't affect his hitting. He'll face a same-side pitcher, lefty Eduardo Rodriguez.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Yankees 1B Tyler Austin says he had his appeal hearing today with MLB officials, regarding his role in last week's brawl with the Red Sox. He was told he may not hear anything more on his appeal until next week.
