Angels' Jered Weaver Leaves Game After 3 Batters

Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver was forced to leave Monday night's game against the New York Yankees after just three batters with an apparent lower back. Weaver threw one pitch to Yankees' cleanup hitter Robinson Cano and landed awkwardly off the mound and appeared to be favoring his right leg.

After getting briefly examined by the training staff, Weaver tried to throw a warmup pitch but was unable to get anything on the pitch and was forced to leave. Weaver yelled into his glove as he walked off the field on his own power.

Weaver, who in his last home start pitched a no-hitter against the Minnesota Twins on May 2, allowed hits to Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson to open Monday's game. Alex Rodriguez hit a hard smash to shortstop that was booted by Erick Aybar, allowing Jeter to score and Granderson to advance to third base.

Bobby Cassevah came in in relief of Weaver, with no outs in the first inning, runners on first and third, and a 1-0 count on Cano, with the Halos trailin the Yankees 2-0.
