May 25, 1982 the California Angels beat the Boston Red Sox 10-2 at Fenway Park. The Angels would get home runs from Brian Downing (2-4, 3 RBI), Bobby Grich (1 run, 1 RBI) and Tim Foli (2-2, 2 runs, 4 RBI). Bruce Kison would pitch a complete game, giving up 2 runs on 4 hits and striking out 4, moving to 4-0 on the season and putting the Angels at 29-15 on their way to the AL West title that year. The Angels would sign Kison at the end of 1979, a free agent out of Pittsburgh that year, after the departure of Nolan Ryan. During 1980 and 1981, Kison would only appear in 24 games with the Angels. In 1982, Kison would have his best year with the Angels, going 10-5 with a 3.17 ERA. After Tommy John pitched a complete game victory in the 1982 ALCS against the Milwaukee Brewers, Kison would follow in game 2 with a complete game victory of his own, giving up 2 runs on 5 hits as the Angels took a 2-0 series lead. After the Brewers evened the series at 2-2, Kison would start the deciding game 5 and pitch 5 innings, giving up 1 earned run on 3 hits before Luis Sanchez would lose the game in relief as the Angels lost 4-3 and were eliminated from the ALCS. Kison finished the ALCS with a 1.93 ERA in 14 innings pitched. Kison would later be granted free agency after the 1984 season.
