Angels Vs. Twins Final Score: Jered Weaver's No-Hitter Completes Sweep (VIDEO)

The Los Angeles Angels were going for their first sweep of 2012 on Wednesday night. They ended up getting much, much more than that, as they coasting to a 9-0 win while team ace Jered Weaver pitched the ninth no-hitter in team history.

Weaver went the whole nine innings and allowed just two baserunners, on a walk and a passed ball on a strikeout. Weaver picked up nine strikeouts in the no-no, the last of which was for the second out of the ninth inning, as he struck out Denard Span looking. With the hometown Anaheim crowd on their feet, Weaver got Alexi Casilla to fly out to right fielder Torii Hunter to make history.
