WEAVER LEFT THE GAME IN THE FIRST INNING AGAINST THE YANKEES
Thu, 31 May 2012 03:42 PM EDT

L.A Angels ace Jered Weaver left his start against the New York Yankees in the 1st inning Monday night after only 12 pitches and failing to record an out. Betting lines

They later said they will wait till Weaver undergoes an MRI and X-rays Tues. before deciding whether they’ll put him on the 15-day DL, but the All-Star right-hander said that he was still in substantial discomfort almost 4 hours after leaving the game, even after team doctors administered muscle relaxers.

“I’ve never felt anything like that before. It felt like someone stabbed me in the back,” Weaver asserted. “I couldn’t actually do much about it. It’s very disappointing. You get motivated for games like this.”

Weaver made a 1-0 pitch to Robinson Cano and bent over in apparent discomfort.

He attempted to finish a warm-up pitch but may barely get the ball to home plate. He limped off the field, accompanied by Chief Mike Scioscia.

“We’re about to have a look at 2 things and see what we want to do,” declared Scioscia, who exhausted most of his bullpen as the Angels hung on to beat the Yankees 9-8 for their 7th sequential win. “He’s stiff now, but we’ll have the examinations later and make a decision.”

Weaver stood roughly in front of his locker after the game.

“I can’t really bend over too much,” he said. “I tried to throw that 2nd pitch, but there was no way. The way, in which the team is playing at the moment, I’m one of the players that need to be out there.”

Weaver (6-1) was making his 1st appearance at Angel Stadium since his May 2 no-hitter in opposition to the Minnesota Twins. He is 4-0 with a 0.83 ERA at home this season.

New York’s initial 2 hitters all reached base against Weaver, 2 on hits and the other on Erick Aybar’s inaccuracy.

Weaver began the night 6-1 with a 2.61 ERA, 2nd in the American League in victories. Any extended absence may be tragic for the Angels, whose touted starting rotation has not been provoking beyond Weaver’s steady play.

Weaver went 18-8 with a 2.41 ERA last season, making his 2nd All-Star team and finishing 2nd in the American League Cy Young Award voting after leading the majors with 233 strikeouts in 2010. He has been just as good this year, giving up just 3 runs and 6 hits in 15 innings during his 2 previous starts before facing the New York Yankees.

Derek Jeter led off with a single against Weaver. He advanced to 2nd on Curtis Granderson’s single and then scored when Aybar booted Alex Rodriguez’s grounder.

After Weaver left, reliever Bobby Cassevah struck out Cano but walked Mark Teixeira and allowed Raul Ibanez’s sacrifice fly. Rodriguez scored another Yankees run when Cassevah made a deficient throw to 1st base, allowing Nick Swisher to reach.

Cassevah retired Russell Martin on a bases-loaded flyout to end the inning with the Angels down 3-0.

Cassevah pitched 1/3 innings before Hisanori Takahashi, David Carpenter and Jason Isringhausen came on.

The L.A Angels were returning from a 10-game road trip on a 6-game winning streak, while the N.Y Yankees had won 5 in a row.
