Game Thread #102: A's at Blue Jays

The A's will look to salvage a game.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

In this week's installment of Baseball for Breakfast, we've got Sean Manaea looking to extend his streak of pretty-good-but-not-always-quality starts. In his last 13 outings, Manaea is 7-3 with a 3.42 ERA, but he only gave up more than three runs in four of the starts. Bottom line: he's been really good except for when he's not (sorry), any even then, he's not that bad. Not to mention, in those 13 starts, he struck out 22.5 percent of batters and walked 7.7 percent.

Marcus Stroman has been great for the Jays this year. He's 9-5 with a 2.98 ERA through 20 starts, and is striking out over 20 percent of batters. Granted, he's got an elite defense behind him.
