Jered Weaver allowed just two hits in seven innings as the Angels salvaged a win in their four-game set with the Oakland Athletics, 6-0. It's not that the A's weren't trying, but Weaver was back in form after missing a start because of biceps tendinitis.
The A's swung and missed on 37% of Weaver's 94 pitches and fouled off 34.8% of them putting only 28.3% of the pitches in play.
What I found most interesting in this game, beyond the fact that the A’s were shut out again was that in their first 142 games, the A’s had given up just 36 runs in the 7th inning (.25 a game), and here in game 143 they gave up six.
