Earliest Cash - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #965 Sunday 10* Top Play Oakland A's Money Line (+) @ New York Yankees @ 1:05 ET - Anyone who played the Yankees should realize they had one of the luckiest wins of the season. No, it wasn't just the fact that they tied it in the bottom of the 8th nor that it was a walk-off win in the 11th. The good fortune was that while the Yankees only left 3 men on base in an 11-inning game, the A's went a ridiculous 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position and left 15 men on base. Not only that, all 15 men on base were in the first 9 innings. It was a game Oakland should have won easily in "regulation time" and yet they couldn't get a clutch hit to save their lives. I love backing teams like this in their very next game when the pitching match-up is right and we have the ideal situation here. JA Happ is a weak link in the Yankees rotation. The left-hander had a rough August and, overall, he is having a bad season which includes a 6.70 ERA since the All Star break. He also got roughed up by Oakland when he most recently faced them. As for the A's, fighting hard for a playoff spot, they bring their "wild card" to the table in this one Sunday as now the long-awaited return of Sean Manaea is here. The southpaw went 12-9 with a 3.52 ERA and held opponents to a .232 batting average last season before he got hurt. Is he ready to come back? Yes! At AAA Las Vegas (and the PCL is a tough league to pitch in) he has dominated. Manaea 3-1 with a 3.21 ERA in his 5 rehab starts and held opponents to a paltry .165 batting average. I'll take the underdog off an unreal loss with the better pitcher on the mound every single time it comes up and that is precisely the situation we have here which is why I am elevating to my highest rating for this one. 10* OAKLAND
