Athletics 3, Indians 1: Chad Pinder and Sean Manaea help Athletics trump Mike Clevinger and Indians. Reported by Ryan Lewis. Indians manager Terry Francona has often said that momentum in baseball lasts only as far as the next day’s opposing pitcher. For the Indians, who had begun to roll offensively, consider that momentum halted. The Indians managed only three hits against Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Sean Manaea and fell 3-1 to the Athletics Wednesday night at Progressive Field.
