ALDS Game 3: Angels Aim to Sweep Sox, Advance to ALCS

Up 2-0 in the series, the Angels only have to win one more. As a bonus, winning Game 3 would complete a sweep of the Red Sox, who have beaten them three times this decade in the ALDS (2004, 2007 and 2008).

Clay Buchholz will start for the Red Sox in Fenway, and Scott Kazmir will take the hill for the Angels. SB Nation’s Halos Heaven has an exhaustive breakdown of Kazmir’s history with each member of the Red Sox lineup, and Over the Monster features a quick Q&A with Halos Heaven. In part:

OTM: The Angels stole their first base in game two. All the experts predicted the Angels would “run wild” over the Sox. Is this somewhat a surprise, or did you expect this?

[Halos Heaven:] Because most analysts cannot pinpoint Mike Sciosica’s managing, they find the baserunning and fixate on it. This team does not live by speed alone.

Stay on top of the rivalry between the Angels and Red Sox by following along with our SB Nation blogs, Halos Heaven and Over the Monster.
