Result: Loss
8* Oakland (8:40 ET): The A’s have played three doubleheaders in the last 7 days, one of which was yday (split w/ Seattle), but do not expect any kind of letdown as they open a series with Colorado on Monday. The AL West leaders have some revenge on their mind here as they dropped a pair of home games to the Rockies early in the season. That was during an 11-3 start to the season for Colorado. Since then, they’ve gone just 10-22 with September being particularly brutal thus far. Go with the favorite in this one.

Having played so many games (10!) in the last week, Oakland could obviously use a good start here and fortunately they’ve got Sean Manaea on the mound. The team has won his L5 starts w/ Manaea going 4-0 the L4 with a 1.61 ERA. Even better, he has a 0.765 WHIP in the L3. Last time out was his best start to date as he went seven innings and allowed just one run on two hits against Houston. Manaea did not face Colorado in the prior series.

For Colorado, the month began with a 23-5 loss to the Giants. They’ve never really recovered. After dropping two in a row to the Angels this past weekend, the Rockies’ record in the L13 games is just 4-9. Even their hitter-friendly home park couldn’t do much over the weekend for the scuffling lineup as they scored just 2 and 3 runs in those losses. I faded them Sunday as my Game of the Week and they’re matched up with an even stronger opponent here, one that wants revenge for the early season sweep. The Rockies are 0-3 as home dogs of +125 to +175 this season. 8* Oakland
