Manaea sharp but A’s fall to Angels after slow offensive start

Sean Manaea looked good and Steven Vogt hit a home run but it wasn’t enough for the A’s to pull out a win over the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim on Monday, losing 2-1.

Manaea allowed only one run in seven innings but the A’s had a slow start offensively, not getting a hit off of Jared Weaver until there were two outs in the fifth.

Weaver left the game after the fifth and Vogt hit a home run off of Deolis Guerra after Guerra had retired the first two hitters in the sixth.

It was the A’s sixth loss in the last seven games.

The Angels Albert Pujol scored the game-winning run in the eighth, which could have been prevented had reliever Ryan Dull not bobbled the ball as he stumbled, giving him only the out at first.

Manaea looked good going into his third start since returning from injury, until giving up his first run in 14 innings on a solo homer by Mike Trout.

The A’s and Angels are fighting it out over last place in the AL West.
