Game 3 – 1978 Tournament Replay Twins vs Angels

Must win Game 3 for the Twins as they send Geoff Zahn (14-14 3.03 Grade 14) to the hill while the Angels start Chris Knapp (14-8 4.21 Grade 6). Twins get an early run in the first as Roy Smalley goes yard to give the Twins a lead. That lead would be short lived as the Angels get 3 in the second as Bobby Grich hits a huge 3 run homer to give the Angels the lead. The Twins would get back in the game with a 2 spot in the 6th, but the Angels get 3 more in the 7th with doubles by Carney Lansford and Lyman Bostock being the big hits. The Twins had no quit as they plate 2 in the bottom of the 7th, but Dave LaRoche comes in to get his second save of the series. Angels move on to face the Reds in the sweet sixteen.

Final Score: Angels 8, Twins 5

WP: Chris Knapp (1-0)

LP: Geoff Zahn (1-1)

Save: Dave LaRoche (2)

HR’s: Twins – Roy Smalley (2), Bobby Grich (1)
