Astros drop series opener to Oakland A's, 8-1

Manaea no-hit Boston last Saturday and didn't allow a hit Friday until the fourth inning.

Manaea started with three flawless innings against the Astros before George Springer reached on a throwing error by shortstop Marcus Semien starting the fourth.

In the A's 8-1 win against the defending World Series champion Houston Astros on Friday, Sean Manaea worked seven innings, giving up just four hits and striking out seven. That base hit snapped Manaea's streak of consecutive innings pitched without allowing a hit at 14, breaking John "Blue Moon" Odom's Oakland franchise record that had stood since 1968, the franchise's first season in Oakland, per Martin Gallegos of the Mercury News. So, while his hitless streak was snapped, Manaea has still not allowed an earned run in his last 17 innings pitched, according to Jane Lee of MLB.com, and his season ERA now stands at a sparkling 1.03.

Manaea has established himself as the true ace of the staff and one of the best pitchers in baseball, having bested the likes of Felix Hernandez, Chris Sale, and now Keuchel in his past three starts. Houston's Carlos Correa singled cleanly through the right side off the Athletics pitcher in the fourth inning on Friday night, ending Manaea's hitless streak at 14 innings. Matt Olson's RBI single in the seventh scored Chapman, who had doubled, and Mark Canha followed with a two-run homer to up the lead to 6-1. Keuchel finished seven innings, but the A's tagged him for six runs on seven hits. Oakland recalled LHP Danny Coulombe from Triple A Nashville to take Buchter's spot on the roster.

Astros: RHP Lance McCullers (3-1) starts Saturday looking for his third straight win.
