Oakland A's lefty Sean Manaea continued his excellent start to the 2018 season last night in pitching a no-hitter over the red-hot Boston Red Sox. Manaea struck out ten hitters and walked two. He threw 108 pitches, an astounding 75 of which were for strikes. That's beyond impressive for a man facing MLB's most potent lineup right now.


Manaea almost lost the no-hitter in the sixth inning after Andrew Benintendi appeared to avoid first baseman Ryan Olson's tag on an infield single, but the video showed he ran out of the baseline and he was ultimately ruled out. The rest, as they say, is history. Manaea turned in an excellent performance and based on his numbers right now, he's only just getting started.
