Manaea fans 10 as A's win: Andrean graduate Sean Manaea matched his career high by striking out 10 in his second start following shoulder surgery, and the Oakland Athletics beat Detroit 3-1 on Sunday. "I'm trying to throw hard again but if it's not there, it's more about the conviction that I have with my pitches," Manaea said. "I got a couple swings and misses with 89 mph. If that's what it takes then that's what I've got. I can't be greedy and be upset that I'm not throwing 95, 97." Manaea (1-0) pitched five scoreless innings against the New York Yankees on Sept. 1, his first big league outing since winning at Minnesota on Aug. 24 last year.

The Sky (20-14) are the No. 5 playoff seed and play No. 8 Phoenix at home on Wednesday in the single-elimination opening round of the playoffs. Chicago's Courtney Vandersloot had six assists to become the first player in league history to reach 300 in a season, which she did exactly.
