What an incredible month it’s been for the 6-foot-7 pitcher Jered Weaver. On Monday, he became the first pitcher in MLB history to get six wins on his own by April 25th. Not only did he accomplish that, but against the Oakland Athletics the right hander left his opponents no other choice but to swing the bat. There is no question that the Los Angeles Angels can see a lot further when they’re standing on Jered Weaver’s shoulders. Odds.
The Angels broke a four-game losing streak with a 5-0 win over Gio Gonzalez and the Athletics on Monday night. Weaver threw 114 pitches and gave Oakland its third “zero runs” loss in five games. However, the Angels were coming off a four-game sweep by the Boston Red Sox in which they were beaten 5-0 and 7-0 in the last two games.
“Obviously, we didn’t do what we wanted to do against Boston, but our boys came to play tonight and were able to get me a couple of runs early off a great pitcher,” Weaver the star of the game said. “It wasn’t just me. The guys played great defense behind me.” Scores.
Weaver got his 70th career triumph, reaching that totality with an improved winning take (.642) than anybody in the franchise’s 51-year record. Weaver started his big league occupation in 2006 by going 9-0 in his first 12 starts after he was promoted from the minors two months into the season.
Fun fact of the day: the four Athletics right-handed sluggers in the lineup pooled to go 0-for-12 with a handful of strikeouts. Weaver went with both the fastball and slider early in the count, but he went over and done with them with the heater as the A’s righties went 0-for-7 with four strikeouts in at-bats ending late in the count.
