A's wrap up strong home stand on winning note behind Davis blast

No-hitters belong to the game's resident demigods like Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer, and to names long forgotten like Bud Smith and Chris Heston.
Clevinger (2-0) was terrific while allowing just two hits in his first career complete game.
Sean Manaea's no-hitter almost wasn't.
During his college tenure playing in the Missouri Valley Conference, Sean Manaea wasn't even the most prominent or promising prospect in the conference, with the likes of Missouri State University, Wichita State, and Dallas Baptist and Illinois State's Paul DeJong - who is now the starting shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals.
Khris Davis smacked a three-run home run off David Price in the eighth inning to give the A's a 4-1 victory over the Red Sox in Oakland on Sunday. Manaea's next start is set for Friday, at Houston.
It figures, then, that Manaea would so thoroughly dismantle the game's best offense, because that's baseball.
Manaea has struck out 10, walked one and thrown 95 pitches against the hard-hitting Red Sox.
"I was running back and I heard (center fielder Mark) Canha was yelling, 'Marcus, Marcus, ' and I thought he said, 'I got it, '" Semien said, "but I still think I should've caught the ball". It was ruled an error. Bartolo Colon came within six outs of a ideal game last Sunday, while Tyson Ross went deeper into the game - four outs away from a no-hitter for the San Diego Padres earlier this week. After a brief meeting, the umpires reversed the initial hit call and Benintendi was ruled out for having deviated off the baseline in order to avoid the tag.
But there were a couple of calls that could have swung it differently. I think the umpires got it right.
■ The first came in the fifth inning with two outs.
Manaea (3-2) tossed the 12th no-hitter in franchise history, finishing the milestone with 108 pitches and facing three above the minimum.
Manaea was so focused on throwing strikes that he didn't pay attention to the call and just assumed his no-hitter ended there.
Price had thrown only 81 through seven innings. Leon, Benintendi and Mookie Betts-who led off the game with a walk-were the only Sox hitters to reach.
Up until the Davis home run, Price was having a stellar outing, allowing just one run through the first seven innings, striking out six and walking just one. The play was scored an error. Coming into April, the A's only had five healthy pitchers in their rotation; Sean Manaea emerging as cornerstone for the ensemble is undoubtedly the break Oakland needed.
Mariners 9, Rangers 7: Robinson Cano hit a go-ahead, two-run home run as part of a five-run, eighth-inning uprising for Seattle, and Edwin Diaz got the final four outs for his MLB-leading eighth save as the Mariners came from behind to beat Texas in the middle game of a three-game series in Arlington.

Rubio dictated the tempo of the game, smothered Westbrook on defense and pushed the ball in transition to get the Jazz easy looks. Oklahoma City's hot shooting continued as the Thunder stretched its lead to 12, but it wasn't long after that Rubio got going.
And, speaking ahead of his match against Dimitrov, Nadal revealed he had been talking to Murray about his injury woes. He won his last match against Nadal in the 2016 Olympic bronze-medal match, but has never beaten him on clay.
