Angels complete four-game sweep of A’s behind Matt Shoemaker gem

The force of the “sweep, sweep, sweep” chant grew louder and more boisterous from the capacity crowd at Angels Stadium on Sunday afternoon in the ninth inning, as the Angels closed out an emphatic four-game sweep of the rival Oakland A’s. There was no mistaking the magnitude of the game and what it meant in the standings for the MLB-best Angels after a commanding 8-1 win over...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Aug 27

Yesterday I suggested a Giants stack against Jorge De La Rosa plus Matt Shoemaker in the rotation. Shoemaker and Buster Posey delivered big and my pair of Dodgers chipped in solid efforts, but the rest of the Giants did little.

Week 21 Two Start Pitchers: he big pitching news of the week came out of Los Angeles as they Angels lost their ace Garrett Richards for rest of the season and quite possibly the first part of 2015.

Sunday Notes: Shoemaker’s Path, Luhnow’s Method, Ramsey, Thompson, Strom

Matt Shoemaker is good. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim righthander has a 3.56 ERA and a 8.86 K/9 in 103-and-two-thirds innings. His record stands at 12-4 and he flirted with a no-hitter in his last start. He’s also a good story. A 27-year-old rookie — he turns 28 next month — Shoemaker spent six […]

Matt Shoemaker, rookie starter for the Los Angeles Angels, was in the middle of the game of his life last night when Boston’s Will Middlebrooks broke up his no-hitter in the seventh inning.

Controversial call overshadows Shoemaker's dominance

Matt Shoemaker will probably never forget Saturday's game between the Tigers and Angels. Brad Ausmus is going to remember it for a long time too, but for entirely different reasons. Shoemaker, facing the team he grew up idolizing for the first time, pitched seven shutout innings in a 4-0 win over the Tigers with his family in the stands. "This is incredibly special,"...
