Athletics Vs. Angels, Game 3 Final Score: Bartolo Colon, Yoenis Cespedes Lead Oakland To 6-0 Win

After Wednesday night's game between the Oakland Athletics and the Los Angeles Angels, Bartolo Colon is now tied with Roy Halladay for the MLB lead in wins. Colon was once again fantastic, improving his record to 3-0 with eight shutout innings in a 6-0 Oakland victory.

The A's at least assured themselves a split in the four-game series following back-to-back wins on Tuesday and Wednesday. The bulk of the damage was done in the top of the first inning, when Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run homer -- his fourth of the year -- off of Angels starter Ervin Santana. The Athletics would add another run in the top of the sixth with a leadoff home run from Jonny Gomes. The final two Oakland runs came in the top of the ninth inning, via a Jemile Weeks RBI double and a bases-loaded walk by Gomes as the A's once again took advantage of the weak Angels bullpen.

Colo went eight innings, giving up just four hits and no walks while striking out five. He combined with Faytino De Los Santos for the shutout. Oakland's 1-2-3 hitters of Weeks, Cliff Pennington and Josh Reddick each had two hits in the game.

Oakland improves to 6-7 and will go for the series win -- and .500 -- on Thursday night.
