Angels Activate Jered Weaver, Place Jerome Williams On 15-Day Disabled List

The Los Angeles Angels made a pair of roster moves on Tuesday. The team activated ace Jered Weaver from the 15-day disabled list. Weaver made the start in Tuesday's series finale against the San Francisco Giants. In a corresponding move, the Angels placed starter Jerome Williams on the 15-day DL.

Williams left the game early in Monday's game against the Giants after giving up a string of baserunners. Shortly after leaving the game, Williams was taken to the hospital with shortness of breath. Williams was kept at the hospital overnight and released the following day.

The official reason given by the team for placing Williams on the disabled list is for the pitcher to receive further evaluation and testing concerning his shortness of breathing following his start on Monday. Garrett Richards, who was called up to fill in for Weaver during Weaver's stint on the DL, will remain in the rotation.

Angels Vs. Giants Final Score: Halos Even Series With 12-5 Victory

Heading into Tuesday night's game, the Los Angeles Angels knew they were going to get the best pitching matchup of their series against the San Francisco Giants. The Halos got to Giants starter Barry Zito early and took advantage of some San Francisco gaffes for the easy 12-5 win.

Before the Giants could record an out in the first inning, Albert Pujols hit a three-run homer; his eleventh of the year. Peter Bourjos later hit a sacrifice fly to make it 4-0 Angels. The Giants got their first run in the top of the second with an RBI single by Pablo Sandoval, but the Angels got that run right back in the bottom of the frame with a Pujols single for Pujols' fourth RBI of the game.

The Halos tacked on four more runs in the bottom of the fourth. Mark Trumbo hit a bases-loaded triple off the wall that by all rights should have been caught by Angel Pagan, then came in to score on a Howie Kendrick sacrifice fly. The Giants cut the lead to 9-3 in the fifth inning, then to 9-5 in the seventh, but the Angels hung another crooked number in the bottom of the eighth. Torii Hunter hit an RBI single and Trumbo followed up with a two-run single that gave him five RBI in the game.

The Angels will attempt to capture the series with a win on Wednesday night.

Angels Vs. Giants Final Score: San Francisco Takes Game 1, 5-3

The first game of a three-game interleague series between the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Angels took place on Monday night at Angel Stadium. Both teams attempted to scratch and claw for runs, but on a night where neither team's starting pitching was anything to write home about, the Giants won by a final score of 5-3.

The Angels struck first in the bottom of the first inning, as Mike Trout once again made it all happen more or less by himself. With Matt Cain making his first start since his perfect game, Trout opened the bottom of the first with a single, stole second base, advanced to third on a Torii Hunter fly ball and came in to score on a fly ball from Albert Pujols. Trout would end up going just 1-for-4 with a walk, but would steal three bases in the game.

In the top of the second inning, Halos starter Jerome Williams would walk Pablo Sandoval and Brandon Belt with one out. Both runners came in to score on a triple by Brandon Crawford, giving the Giants a 2-1 lead. Mark Trumbo led off the bottom of the second inning with his 16th home run of the season to tie things up once again.

In the top of the third, Angel Pagan hit an RBI single to put the Giants back on top. Ryan Theriot hit another RBI single in the top of the fourth to make it 4-2 Giants and Williams was lifted for reliever Hisanori Takahashi. Williams would later be taken to the hospital due to experiencing shortness of breath. The episode ended at the hospital but Williams will be kept overnight for observation.

In the bottom of the fourth, Bobby Wilson hit a sacrifice fly, which plated Alberto Callaspo to make it 4-3, but that would be the last time the Halos would be within a run. Theriot hit another RBI single up the middle in the top of the sixth.

While both teams stranded their share of runners, the Angels' pitchers were working from the stretch all evening. The only time the Angels recorded a 1-2-3 inning was in the top of the ninth, long after the damage had already been done.

The Halos will try to even things up on Tuesday evening.

Jerome Williams Hospitalized Overnight After Start For Angels Vs. Giants

An alarming note from tonight's game. Jerome Williams was taken to the hospital after his start on Monday night when the Los Angeles Angels lost 5-3 to the San Francisco Giants. Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times has more.

A team spokesman confirmed late in the game that Williams, who was tagged for four runs and seven hits in 3 1/3 innings, was taken by ambulance to UC Medical Center in Orange for precautionary reasons after experiencing shortness of breath. The Angels were awaiting word on his condition at game's end.

Williams was removed from the game after being tagged for four runs and seven hits after recording only ten outs, but it figures that you have to give him a pass for his performance if he was actually suffering from health issues that manifested themselves after he was taken out. Here's to hoping he gets better in a hurry, although it does appear all of this was precautionary.

Williams does appear to be recovering nicely and is better than he was at the ballpark, so that's good to know.
