The Angels have not been swept at home in 73 consecutive series. The Brewers have not swept the Angels since 1988. Angels’ pitcher Joel Pineiro is 4-0 with a 2.98 ERA against the Brewers. I was tired, eating tacos, drinking Pacifico and lowering my expectations prior to the final game at Los Angeles on Wednesday. (I know this makes me old, but I have a hard time calling the Angels, the Los Angeles Angels.) I really wanted a sweep but was pretty sure that the best part of my evening might be the tacos and beer.
And I was right. The Taco House never disappoints. The Brewers, sometimes they disappoint.
Chris Narveson got behind early giving up a solo homerun in the first and a three-run shot in the second. The Brewers managed only one run off Pineiro all night, a solo shot by Carlos Gomez. I'm looking forward to my off day on Thursday. I know the Brewers are, too.
