Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver, the runner up to the Cy Young Award last year, spun a no-hitter Wednesday in Anaheim in a 9-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins.
The Angels’ ace was brilliant, allowing just one walk en route to Major League Baseball’s second no-hitter in the majors in less than two weeks. Phil Humber of the Chicago White Sox threw a perfect game at Seattle on April 21.
Weaver (4-0) struck out nine and the Twins did not came close to getting a hit against the All-Star right-hander.
”It was an easy ride,” Weaver said.
He had a more difficult time surviving the mob of teammates after Tori Hunter corralled the last out on the right-field warning track than he did handling the Minnesota batters.
