I like to cat the file and grep a phrase and necxt 3 lines

EX
<>
 SELECT t1.commerce_item_id,t1.type,t3.ship_date
   FROM dcspp_item t1
   LEFT OUTER JOIN usps_label_items t3 ON t3.commerce_item_id=t1.commerce_item

  WHERE t2.order_id=t1.order_ref
    AND ((t1.type = ?)
    AND ((t2.profile_id = ?)
    AND ((t2.state = ?)
    OR (t2.state = ?)
    OR (t2.state = ?)
    OR (t2.state = ?)
    OR (t2.state = ?))
    AND (t3.ship_date >= ?)
    AND (t3.ship_date <= ?)))
 ORDER BY t3.ship_date ASC
-- Parameters --
p[1] = {pd: type} 4003 (java.lang.Integer)
p[2] = {pd: profileId} 1320006 (java.lang.String)
p[3] = {pd: state} SUBMITTED (java.lang.String)
p[4] = {pd: state} PROCESSING (java.lang.String)
p[5] = {pd: state} PENDING_MERCHANT_ACTION (java.lang.String)
p[6] = {pd: state} PENDING_CUSTOMER_ACTION (java.lang.String)
p[7] = {pd: state} NO_PENDING_ACTION (java.lang.String)
p[8] = {pd: shipDate} 2010-11-09 (java.sql.Date)
p[9] = {pd: shipDate} 2010-11-14 (java.sql.Date)
<>

When I grep SELECT, for above lines of code I like to see only 3 lines

SELECT t1.commerce_item_id,t1.type,t3.ship_date
   FROM dcspp_item t1
   LEFT OUTER JOIN usps_label_items t3 ON t3.commerce_item_id=t1.commerce_item

There are several SELECT ( 300) in the 5000 lines of file,
I like to grep each SELECT and next 2 lines


Is this possible to do

If so, I'll appreciate, if any one can help

Thanks
