Sean Manaea is taking the mound against the team that drafted him as he looks to get his promising season back on track. After a spectacular April, in which he was, at one point, literally unhittable, the Throwin’ Samoan hasn’t been able to duplicate his success, and has been consistently below average since his historic start. Going up against Manaea is a pitcher making just his third start of his career, Brad Keller, who has been excellent in his brief stint in the show.
The Royals are playing for a series split, and the A’s are looking to win three of four games. First pitch is at 1:05. Lineups are below.
