Jered Weaver Fans 11 Cubs in Angels Win, is MLB K Leader

Final Score in Wrigley Field of Chicago: Angels 12, Cubs 0

Angels ace Jered Weaver struck out eleven Cubs to take the lead in strikeouts among all pitchers in baseball with 107 Ks recorded in 2010. He allowed 2 hits in 7 IP and walked none, throwing 109 pitches in the process.

Meanwhile, the Angels crushed Ted Lilly and the Cubs with a 12-0 blowout. The big blow was a bases clearing 3-run double by Juan Rivera in the 1st inning after Howie Kendrick put the Wrigley fans on notice that this would not be a Lilly No-Hit bid, nor shutout start... Howie cracked a leadoff HR to get things going and the Angels never looked back. Bibby Abreu pitched in with 4 hits and a BB, Torii Hunter hit a 2-Run HR in the 5th inning.

Weaver could do no wrong today, doinking a 2-out single to keep the 7th inning alive and scoring a run in the 6th after reaching on a Lilly throwing error.
