Jered Weaver Pitches a No-Hitter Against The Twins [Video]
Anaheim, CA. - Los Angeles Angels Ace pitcher Jered Weaver threw the weeks second no-hitter against the Minnesota Twins. Weaver was spectacular in the Los Angeles Angels 9-0 win over the Twins on Wednesday night.
On a balmy night in Los Angeles Weaver threw 9 innings of no hit ball and struck out 9 while walking 1. The Twins never came close to getting a hit against the All-Star right-hander.
It just so happens that Weaver’s gem came during the same week that Phil Humber of the Chicago White Sox threw a perfect game against Seattle on April 21.
Weaver increases his record to 4-0, a California native who played at Long Beach State, came out for the ninth inning and quickly retired Jamey Carroll on a routine fly and struck out Denard Span looking.
Weaver then induced Alexi Casilla to lift a long fly that right fielder Torii Hunter easily caught at the warning track. The Angels’ ace watched his Gold Glove outfielder make the play. Weaver than put his hand on his head and screamed as the Angels came running out of the dugout to mob him and celebrate.
With his no-hitter in the books, Weaver hugged his wife, his dad and his mom, who was crying on the field.
Weaver told the press after the game,
“I’m at a loss for words right now. It hasn’t kicked in yet. Thank you for all your support. Couldn’t have done it without the defense. The guys were picking me up left and right.
Jered Weaver was the second Angel to throw a no-hitter in less than a year. Ervin Santana pitched one July 27, 2011 at Cleveland.
