The Oakland Athletics look for another win after winning six of their last eight games. The Athletics have scored 27 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in six straight games. The Oakland Athletics offense has also shown up this week, and they’ve won six of their last seven games when scoring more than three runs. Danny Valencia leads Oakland with 70 hits, Khris Davis has 53 RBI and Marcus Semien has 15 home runs. Sean Manaea takes the hill, and he’s 2-4 with a 6.02 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season. This will be Manaea’s first career game against the Giants.
The Giants are 14-3 in their last 17 during game 3 of a series and 6-13 in Peavys last 19 road starts. The Athletics are 2-6 in their last 8 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games. The Giants are 4-12 in the last 16 meetings in Oakland.
I can't eat juice with Peavy on the mound. Oakland is hitting the ball well at the moment and has to be rather confident returning home with wins in six of its last eight games. I'll take a shot with the Athletics and the plus money.
