LA Angels’ Weaver named American League Player of the Week

 

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher Jered Weaver, who tossed the first no-hitter of his career last Wednesday and the second in the Majors this season, has been named American League Player of the Week in recognition of his accomplishment for the period ending May 6th.

This is Weaver’s first career Player of the Week honor.

In recognition of his American League Player of the Week Award, Jered Weaver will be awarded a watch courtesy of Game Time, the leader in licensed sports watches, available at MLB.com.

Weaver, Northridge, California native and a two-time A.L. All-Star, needed 121 pitches to shut down the Minnesota Twins, 9-0, in the ninth individual no-hitter in Angels history and the 10th overall. It was the first no-no for the Angels since Ervin Santana blanked the Cleveland Indians on July 27, 2011 at Progressive Field, and it was the first gem by an Angels starter at home since Mark Langston and Mike Witt combined to no-hit the Seattle Mariners on April 11, 1990.

Against Minnesota, the 6’7” right-hander threw 16 first-pitch strikes en route to a season-high nine strikeouts while issuing his lone walk to Josh Willingham in the seventh inning. The Twins’ only other baserunner came in the second when Chris Parmelee reached first base safely on a passed ball following a strikeout. The victory helped the Long Beach State product improve to 4-0 with a 1.61 ERA on the season.

The 29-year-old Weaver is a 2-time All-Star with a career record of 86-47, an ERA of 3.24, 1,022 strikeouts, 10 complete games, 5 shutouts and was the MLB strikeout leader in 2010.

Less than two weeks ago on April 21, Phil Humber of the Chicago White Sox threw the first no-hitter of the 2012 baseball season against Seattle.

On Wednesday night, LA Angels ace pitcher Jared Weaver pitched the second no-hitter, overmatching the slumping Minnesota Twins, 9-0.

The Twins, who were swept by the Angels in a three-game series, was also shutout on Tuesday night by Jerome Williams in a 3-hitter as he retired 18 of the last 19 batters faced.

The flame-throwing Weaver struck out nine and walked one. He threw 121 pitches and kept the crowd of 27,288 in Anaheim on the edges of their seats once they saw the Twins could not muster anything close to a hit.

A product of nearby Long Beach State University, Weaver improves to 4-0.

The last out of the game was Alexi Casilla who flied out to right fielder Torii Hunter.

The 29-year-old pitched the second Angels no-hitter in less than a year, as teammate Ervin Santana hurled one last July 27 at Cleveland, and the 10th in the Angels history and the 250th in MLB history. Nolan Ryan threw four no-hitters for the Angels.
