Pitchers Best Friend Ends Tribe Threat, Still 4-0

Third place hitter Shin Soo Choo came to bat with the bases loaded in the fifth inning and a chance to break the game open at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Hitters Matt LaPorta, Michael Brantley, and Asdrubal Cabrera drew walks from Angels pitcher Tyler Chatwood. Choo then grounded to second, and the Angels turned two to keep the score right where it is. The Tribe built their 4-0 foundation on long balls from Asdrubal Cabrera and Matt LaPorta.

Mitch Talbot continues to impress on the mound, taking a shutout into the fifth inning. He has allowed four hits, with one walk, and one punch out. Talbot’s control has been key this evening, throwing his fastball for strikes and getting hitters out in front of their swing with his curve and off speed pitches.
