Rubber match!

The Oakland A’s and New York Yankees split their first two games in the Bronx, and they’ll play one more Sunday to decide the series.

The rubber match will feature Sean Manaea on the mound for Oakland. The left-hander has allowed a total of three runs over his last five starts combined, spanning 32⅓ innings, and included within that was a shutout against the Mariners. He’s pitched at Yankee Stadium twice in his career, once in 2017 and again in 2019, and he’s yet to allow a run there through a dozen scoreless frames at the famous venue.

After both teams used right-handed starters in each of the first two games, they’ll both switch to southpaws in today’s finale. New York calls on Jordan Montgomery, who hasn’t faced the A’s since 2017 when he got knocked around for four runs including a dinger by Jed Lowrie. He’s got an average ERA this season but strong peripherals.

This post was prepared Saturday night before lineups had been announced, so they’ll be added ASAP.
