Angels 4 Tigers 2 (Game 051) (Record: 27-24)

Anaheim- The Series between the Angels and Tigers, have been all Angels, and on the last game of the series, The Angels swept the Tigers In the lights on Sunday Night Baseball. In the series so far, The Angels starting pitches have all shown their strengths and never have backed down from any scenario. Today it was Matt Shoemaker’s turn to show the Baseball world on Sunday Night Baseball why he is a force to be reckon with. Matt Shoemaker would start off the game, by giving the Tigers an early lead 1-0 in the 2nd. That would be the only run that Shoemaker would allow, as all pitchers this series have pitched their best. Shoemaker got pulled in the in the 6th Inning, and went 5.1 Innings with only allowing 4 hits and one earned run. Shoemaker left with the game 1-0 Tigers, but the Angels would strike back in the 5th Inning.


With Runners on first and second, Erick Aybar would send a single into right field to drive in Grant Green. Mike Trout would follow in his footsteps and single to left field to drive in Johnny Giavotella. The Angels took the lead 2-1 at the end of five Innings. However in the 6th Inning, Johnny Giavotella would commit an error on a under thrown ball to first to let in Miguel Cabrera score from second base. The Game was all tied, until Johnny Giavotella made up for his mistake in the 6th Inning.
