Surging A's go for sweep of Rangers

Left-hander Sean Manaea will make his third start since returning from shoulder surgery when the Oakland Athletics go for a sweep of their three-game series with the Texas Rangers on Sunday afternoon in Arlington, Texas.

Manaea (1-0, 0.75 ERA) went 12-9 with a 3.59 ERA in 27 starts in 2018 and pitched a no-hitter in April against eventual World Series winner Boston. But he was sidelined in late August and underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder on Sept. 19.

After going 3-3 with a 4.71 ERA in eight rehab starts in the minors, Manaea rejoined the A's on Sept. 1 and has been dominant in both of his starts. The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder allowed just one hit in five innings in his 2019 debut against the New York Yankees on Sept. 1, walking three and striking out five. He followed that up seven days later in Oakland by picking up the win in a 3-1 victory over Detroit, allowing two hits and one run in seven innings while striking out 10.
