The A's hold a 2-1 series lead with Game 4 scheduled for Wednesday at 7 p.m. in Morell.
On Sunday afternoon, the A's went with Josh Kirkpatrick on the hill, but the young right-hander lasted only two thirds of an inning, leaving trailing 1-0 with an injury. He was relieved by Adam Smith, who would finish the game for Stratford. The pair surrendered 13 runs on 14 hits.
Grant Doyle picked up the win, limiting Stratford to just four hits.
The Chevies were led by Jarrod Laybolt, who had three hits, including a three-run home-run. Scott Ellsworth added three hits while Scott Harper and Quen Johnston each chipped in with a pair of doubles.
For the A's, Shaun MacDougall's RBI double in the third inning scored John Walsh, who had reached on a double, to break the shutout.
