Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Pitcher Matt Shoemaker once again destroyed another opponent as he continued to make his mark in the history books.
Today, Matt Shoemaker was on the mound against the Indians as he looked to extend his strikeouts to walks ratio. Shoemaker had not thrown a walk in his past 4 starts, as his location and placement of pitches have never been better in his Angel career.
Fast Forward a little to the game, Shoemaker would allow his first walk but he made history. Shoemaker would total 49 strikeouts without a walk which marks third longest streak in baseball since 1974. Today he would not earn the victory as closer Huston Street would allow 3 earned runs as the save was blown. This would be back to back starts where Shoemaker stellar performance was lost in a bullpen blown opportunity.
Shoemaker finished his start today leaving in the 8th Inning. 3 Hits, 0 Runs, 1 Walk, and 11 Strikeouts. Nobody has been able to stop Shoemaker. How long will Shoemaker stay hot?
