Tom Stryker’s Free Baseball Play September 20th


#922 OAKLAND with Manaea (-170) over Seattle with Anderson at 9:40 PM EST
In a zone off five consecutive wins, the A’s will stay hot and grab another dub when the M’s visit on Monday. Oakland rests 6.0-games back in the division and 2.0-games back in the hunt for the AL Wild Card and the Athletics need to take care of business in their own backyard.

Toeing the rubber for the home team will be left-hander Sean Manaea. In the month of September, No. 55 has made three starts against the Royals, White Sox, and Blue Jays and been nipped for eight earned runs and 19 hits in 19.0 innings of work. Manaea struck out 21 and walked two on his way to a 2-0 record and a solid 3.79 ERA. Inside RingCentral Coliseum, Sean has been dominant too. At home, Manaea has surrendered just 37 earned runs and 93 hits in 85.0 frames. That’s good enough for a 5-4 tally and a respectable 3.92 ERA.

Southpaw Tyler Anderson will grab the pearl for the road team. Matched up against the BoSox, ‘Stros, and D’Backs in his last three outings, No. 31 was tripped for eight earned runs and 15 hits in 15.0 innings. Anderson struck out 14 and walked six on his way to a 2-0 mark with a 3.55 ERA. Thankfully, the road hasn’t been kind to Tyler. As a guest, Anderson has been annihilated for 46 earned runs and 85 hits in 84.0 frames. That shakes down to a 4-5 record and a soft 4.93 ERA.

A handful of powerful trends support this Best Bet. Oakland has tasted victory in 124 of its last 184 as a home favorite and 82 of its last 120 when facing a left-handed starter. On the other side of the stadium, Seattle has slipped in five of its last seven when priced as an underdog and four of its last five coming off a win.

If the A’s want to play October baseball, then they’ll need to protect their home turf. Take Oakland with Manaea. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
