Angels Pitcher Jered Weaver Tosses No Hitter

Los Angeles Angels Pitcher Jered Weaver (pictured left) may have had a baseball Angel watching over him last night when he threw the 274th no-hitter in history. The 29-year old Cy Young runner-up began to think about the no-no early on the mound.

”I probably started think about it in the third,” he said with a laugh in postgame. ”It’s tough not to think about it when you see some goose eggs up there. But in a professional ballgame, you never know what’s going to happen. A bloop hit or anything else could happen. A lot of things have got to go your way, and that happened tonight. It still hasn’t kicked in. It’s pretty awesome.”

Awesome is a good word to describe Weaver’s dominance of the Minnesota Twins lineup last night. He overpowered the opposition, throwing 121 pitches, striking out 9 and only walking 1.

This was the second Angels no-hitter in less than a year. Ervin Santana pitched one July 27 against the Cleveland Indians. It marks the 10th in Angels history, 4 of which came at the arm of Nolan Ryan.
