GAME 4 - Thomas' Promises - Halo slugger helps tie series with 2 dingers

GAME 4 - Comiskey Park - LAA 10, CHW 3
Eli Grba vs John Buzhardt
3-4 + a walk & 2 HR's
The Halos scored early and often off of Buzhardt who walked 8 and gave up 11 hits over 6 eventful innings of work.  With the game tied a 1 after 2 innings LA went on a run scoring spree that added 7 unanswered runs, which blew the game wide open.  Eli Grba went 7 innings and gave up just 1 unearned run in the second.  Ryne Duren cleaned off his glasses and finished the game out fine after a shaky 8th inning that cost him 2 runs.  Every regular in the Angel lineup had at least 1 hit.  Lee Thomas had himself a 3 for 5 day where he had 3 runs scored as well as 3 runs knocked in.  Thomas' 2 homers were not cheapies either.  Light hitting shortstop Joe Koppe, who hit .227 in the regular season, went 3 for 4 out of the 8th hole as the Halos won this one walking away.
Series tied 2-2
