Pitchers Ian Anderson, AJ Minter and Luke Jackson combined on Friday to shut out the Houston Astros in Game 3 of the World Series, sports media reported.
After a tight pitching, which flirted with the No-hitter for seven innings, the Atlanta Braves shut out the sidereal 2-0 to lead the Series (2-1).
Atlanta took advantage of a misstep by Venezuelan pitcher Luis Garcia to go ahead with a hairline in the third inning, pushed by Austin Riley.
Meanwhile Ian Anderson was pitching a 5.0-inning gem without even allowing any concessions. And his superb performance was emulated by AJ Minter and Luke Jackson to preserve the no-hitter, no-run game.
Houston barely hit his first hit in the eighth inning and that wasn’t enough to hit the register.
Travis dArnaud hit a solo home run at the end of the eighth inning off Kendall Graveman to tie off any sidereal hope.
Will Smith climbed the mound after that and got the last three ous of the match to score the save.
Anderson was left with the victory. And the setback went to Garcia’s account, who finished with 3 2/3 innings of a run, four walks and six strikeouts.
The fourth game of the series will be played this Saturday in Atlanta.
