GAME THREE

Things were going very well for Matt Shoemaker, as he dazzled in another start, further making his case for the rotation. However, Houston Astros lefty Scott Kazmir matched Shoe pitch for pitch, and this resulted in a scoreless ballgame going into the bottom of the ninth inning. The Angels had just blew their biggest opportunity of the game in the top of the eighth inning, and the Astros took their turn. After not reaching third base all night, Houston finally did so, but that effort was somewhat arbitrary as ‘Stros catcher Jason Castro came up and hit a three run bomb to right center field, thus capping a three game sweep of the Halos. Here is the recap:
