Different game, same results; it was almost a complete carbon copy of Weaver’s last start against the Blue Jays. Once again the bluebirds didn’t have an answer for Weaver’s breaking ball and all they could muster up were 5 hits all evening.
I’ll give credit to Jered Weaver, very quietly he’s putting together an amazing season with the Angels thanks to a 5-2 record and an impressive 2.26 ERA. Weaver also leads all American League pitchers with 6.661 hits per 9 IP.
The Blue Jays will be pleased that they don’t have to face Weaver again this year, because the young righty has only surrendered 6 total hits to the Jays in two starts this season. Just like Sunday’s game against Jon Lester, this was the case of the Blue Jays running into a really great pitcher who has performed particularly well against them.
Brian Tallet will do his best Ron Burgundy impression later today and hopefully bring us some afternoon delight with a win over the Angels. Skyrockets in flight …
