Weaver Throws Nine Scoreless, Angels Beat Mariners In 10th, 1-0

The Angels have never lost a game started by Jered Weaver in Anaheim against the Mariners. That streak continued tonight, but it took a little longer than usual, as the Angels beat Seattle 1-0 in 10 innings for their second straight win. Vernon Wells delivered an RBI single to score Torii Hunter for the game's only run, off Dan Cortes.

Weaver was magnificent yet again, pitching nine shutout innings, lowering his MLB-best ERA to 1.78. However, Weaver got a no-decision. He did strikeout eight batters against just one walk, and allowed seven hits on the night.

"As the game went on, he worked into his stuff. Pitching with your back against the wall, he had to bring out a lot of pitches earlier than he would have liked to," manager Mike Scioscia said of Weaver after the game. "He really changed speeds well."

Jason Vargas pitched six scoreless innings of his own for Seattle, though he was almost touched up in the bottom of the third inning. Hunter, who had a single and two doubles on the night, nearly had a two-run home run, but rookie Trayvon Robinson, playing in his first major league game, made a tremendous grab while nearly falling into the seats in left field.

The Angels are 5-0 at home against the Mariners this season, and have been them eight straight games at home dating back to last season.

Jered Weaver Looks To Remain Undefeated At Home Against Mariners

Jered Weaver and the Angels open a three-game series Friday night in Anaheim against the Mariners, who have recovered to win five of seven games since their 17-game losing streak. Jason Vargas starts for Seattle. The Angels have owned the Mariners of late in Anaheim, and hope to continue the same.

The Angels swept Seattle from July 7-10, and have won seven straight home games against Seattle dating back to last year. In fact, the Angels have won 12 of their last 13 and 16 of their last 18 against the Mariners at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Weaver has been a big part of that success.

In his last seven home starts against Seattle, dating back to 2008, Weaver has allowed two runs or fewer in each game.  He has allowed seven total runs in those seven contests, all Angels wins. In fact, the Angels have not lost in Weaver's 10 career home starts versus the Mariners, thanks in part to Weaver's 2.01 ERA in those games.

Weaver on the season leads the majors with a 1.88 ERA, and has been a quality start machine. Weaver is tied with Justin Verlander for the MLB lead with 21 quality starts this season. Weaver has a current string of 14 straight quality starts that is tied with Frank Tanana for the Angels franchise record for most consecutive quality starts, which Tanana set in 1977. Given his history against the Mariners, Weaver just might pass Tanana tonight.

Tonight's 7:05 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Fox Sports West. For more news and information on the Angels, or on tonight's game, be sure to read Halos Heaven.
