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.

In five games during the honored period, Matsui batted a Major League-leading .571 (12-for-21) with two doubles, two home runs, seven RBI’s and four runs scored en route to winning his fourth career A.L. Player of the Week Award, his first since June 20, 2005.

Matsui’s sixth-inning solo shot snapped a 24-game homerless streak, his longest in four seasons, and became the first player to combine for 500 homers in the Major Leagues and Japan.

A native of Ishikawa, Japan, Matsui has 169 homers in nine MLB seasons and compiled 332 homers in 10 years with the Yomiuri Giants of Japan’s Central League from 1993-2002.
