Weaver Gets Back In Win Column With 8 Ks Against Yankees
ANAHEIM (AP) – Jered Weaver tied for the AL lead with his seventh victory — 39 days after getting his sixth one — and No. 9 hitter Peter Bourjos singled home the go-ahead run for the Los Angeles Angels in a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Friday night.
Weaver (7-4) allowed two runs, three hits and four walks over seven innings and struck out eight to help end the Yankees’ four-game winning streak.
Weaver won his first six starts of the season with a 0.99 ERA, and was 0-4 with a 3.38 ERA over his next six outings after beating Oakland 5-0 for his fifth career shutout.
In the right-hander’s previous start last Saturday, he threw a career-high 128 pitches at Minnesota and allowed just two hits — ending up with a no-decision in the Angels’ 1-0 loss.
