Manaea (1-2) got through just two innings, allowing three runs before his night ended after only 34 pitches because of left shoulder tightness Wednesday.

Analysis: Manaea retired the first three batters he faced, then allowed three runs on four hits in the second inning. "Just a little sharp pain," Manaea said. "Nothing serious. I've dealt with it before. It only took me a few days to get back on the mound. To me, I'm not really worried about it. Just trying to do everything I can to minimize the days I don't throw." As of Wednesday night, there were no plans for any tests on his shoulder.
4/27/2017 Matt Shoemaker, LAA, P
Shoemaker thought only about his team, not how far he had come personally since a line drive that hit off the right side of his head and led to brain surgery last September. Shoemaker battled through five innings for his first victory since that injury, helping the Los Angeles Angels beat the Oakland Athletics 8-5 on Wednesday night.

Analysis: Shoemaker (1-1) went five innings in his fifth start of the season. He was injured on a hit in Seattle by Kyle Seager last September. He experienced no problems in spring training in returning to the mound and the only thing he was missing this season was run support.

Wood gave up a hit in six scoreless innings of a 10-inning loss to the Giants on Wednesday.
