ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP)— Jered Weaver got a measure of payback against Clayton Kershaw six days after a tough-luck loss in their previous matchup, and Vernon Wells homered to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 7-1 victory over the Dodgers on Saturday night.
Weaver (19-4) won his fourth straight decision over six starts, allowing a run and four hits through eight innings with eight strikeouts and two walks. Last season’s major league strikeout leader reduced his AL-best ERA to 1.92, giving up his only run in the fifth on Trent Oeltjen’s sacrifice fly.
Kershaw (8-4) was charged with a season-high seven runs — six earned — and nine hits in six innings with 10 strikeouts.
