Indians Take 2 of 3 from Angels

Game 1: Cal (Ryan) 1 vs Cle (Wise) 7
Cleveland hurler Rick Wise held the Angels to 1 run on 8 hits for a complete game victory despite walking 5. Nolan Ryan struck out 10 in just over 6 innings, but his high pitch count forced the Angels to go to the bullpen in the 7th. Angels relievers Hartzell and LaRoche combined to give up 5 runs and  9 base runners in the 8th and 9th innings and that was all she wrote.

Game 2: Cal (Knapp) 0 vs Cle (Paxton) 2
Chris Knapp went the distance for the Angels, holding the Tribe to 2 runs on 4 hits in his best game of the season. That would not be good enough, however, as Mike Paxton and Dennis Kinney held the Angels to only 2 hits en route to shutting them out. OF Johnny Grubb's 2-run homer in the top of the 9th provided the game's only runs.

Game 3: Cal (Aase) 4 vs Cle (Waits) 2
Don Aase pitched 7 strong innings and Dave LaRoche overcame his recent struggles to pick up his 5th save as the Angels prevented the sweep 4-2. Angels SS Dave Chalk, who recently took over from ineffective Rance Mulliniks as starter, went 2 for 3 with 2 walks to pace Angels offense.
