Manaea (11-9) allowed six earned runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out five across four innings to take the loss Sunday against the Astros.
Manaea started the game well, striking out three batters in the first two innings. However, he ran into trouble with two outs in the third inning, as he allowed four consecutive hits with the big blow being a three-run home run by Yuli Gurriel. The trouble continued as Manaea allowed another homer -- this one a solo shot by Evan Gattis -- prior to being pulled. While his 3.70 ERA and 1.07 WHIP are relatively strong, Manaea has had an inconsistent month of August with starts of just 2.2 and four innings respectively, while also putting together two quality starts.
Manaea (10-8) got the loss Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out one over 2.2 innings against the Dodgers.
Manaea struggled from the get-go and needed 77 pitches (47 strikes) just to record 10 outs. The damage could have been worse, as he exited with two runners on, but reliever Emilio Pagan ended the threat there without further damage. It was the lefty shortest outing of the season, but he still sports a solid 3.50 ERA and 1.05 WHIP over 24 starts. He'll look to turn it around Monday against the Mariners.
Manaea (10-7) picked up the win Wednesday in an 8-3 victory over the Blue Jays, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over six innings while striking out five.
It was the southpaw's third quality start in his last four outings and 13th of the season. Manaea hasn't been able to completely recapture his dynamic early-season form, but he does have a 3.37 ERA and 21:6 K:BB in 34.2 innings over his last six starts. He'll look to keep his momentum going Tuesday at home against the Dodgers.
Manaea (9-7) allowed three earned runs on nine hits over five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Friday. He struck out five.
The good news was that Manaea didn't give up a barrage of runs in the prime hitting conditions of Coors Field. On the other hand, he got minimal run support from an offense that was stymied by Kyle Freeland, who held Oakland batters to five hits and three walks over six scoreless innings. Manaea encouragingly refrained from issuing any free passes for the second straight start, and he was pulled after just 74 pitches. He did surrender a solo home run to Nolan Arenado in his final inning and also saw Charlie Blackmon tag him for a pair of doubles, but he limited the damage overall. Despite the defeat, Manaea managed to extend his streak of not allowing more than three earned runs to 10 consecutive starts, a stretch that was initiated June 5. He'll look to bounce back and hit double-digit wins for the second consecutive season when he faces the Blue Jays next Wednesday.
Manea took the no-decision Sunday, yielding two runs on four hits while striking out five across 6.2 innings in the 6-5 win over the Giants.
Overall, it was a pretty strong outing for Manaea and his first start without allowing a home run or walk since June 22. Coincidentally, June 22 was also the last time he struck out at least five batters. The 26-year-old southpaw will carry a 3.38 ERA and 88:24 K:BB into his next start in Colorado on Friday.
