Jered Weaver twirled yet another gem on Monday night against the Oakland Athletics. The Angels won by a final score of 4-0 to reclaim second place in the American Legue West.
The Angels struck first, getting two runs off of Oakland starter Jarrod Parker in the top of the second inning on RBI singles from Erick Aybar and Mike Trout.
They added two more runs on a single from Torii Hunter in the seventh inning, which was more than enough run support for Weaver.
The Angels were burned by a call in the fifth inning, as Mike Trout was called out at second base trying to stretch a leadoff single into a double, even though he was visibly safe by some measure.
Weaver struck out nine in the complete-game shutout to improve to 15-1 with a 2.13 ERA. He allowed just four hits and walked none.
