“Give him credit where credit is due. The 3 was big-time. Definitely huge,” Oladipo said. “But who’s to say they even run that play? We don’t know what happens. It’s unfortunate. It really sucks that they missed that [goaltending call].”
“We can look at the replay,” Pacers forward Lance Stephenson said. “Clearly, clearly a goaltending.”
Chad Pinder put the Athletics ahead 3-1 with a two-run homer in the sixth. Matt Olson’s RBI single in the seventh scored Chapman, who had doubled, and Mark Canha followed with a two-run homer to up the lead to 6-1. Jed Lowrie had a two-run triple in the eighth.
Carlos Correa singled in George Springer in the fourth, the first hit off Manaea since Seattle’s Taylor Motter hit a one-out solo homer in the fifth inning on April 15.
Manaea’s 14-inning hitless streak was the longest for the A’s since the franchise moved to Oakland, topping John Odom’s 13 innings on June 1 and 7, 1968. The only pitcher to throw consecutive no-hitters was Cincinnati’s Johnny Vander Meer against Brooklyn and the Boston Bees in June 1938.
Keuchel allowed a season-high six runs on seven hits in seven innings. Keuchel had allowed three runs or fewer in each of his five previous starts this season.
Houston has lost three of its last four after winning six straight.
On Wednesday, the commission — formed by NCAA president Mark Emmert after a bribery scandal rocked the sport — recommended lifetime bans for cheating coaches; the end of the one-and-done path to the NBA draft; college eligibility for undrafted underclassmen; and more NCAA authority on the grassroots scene.
Jim Haney, executive director of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, said Friday he expects the commission’s announcement to enhance the sport.
“If we have another episode where the Department of Justice or the FBI have to once again get involved in the business of men’s basketball, the resounding response will be ‘nothing’s changed,'” Haney said in a video released Friday. “We have to change. We’ve gotta make sure that our conduct is carried out with integrity, recruiting is taking care of with integrity and we’ve gotta protect the integrity of our sport and the integrity of our profession going forward.”
The NABC had a conference call with key members on Thursday one day after the commission released its lengthy report.
Haney said Kansas coach Bill Self and Saint Joseph’s coach Phil Martelli, who are members of the NCAA oversight committee, will play key roles in implementing the recommendations in the coming months.
