The 4,000th Angels win in franchise history took place in the city that saw the franchise's most heartbreaking road loss ever: Seattle. The ghosts of 1995 may have shattered along with the concrete of the old Kingdome, but it still feels good to give the Mariners what Mark Langston, J.T. Snow and Rex Hudler couldn't: A slice of shutout pie.

Jered Weaver shut out the M's on 5 hits, striking out 6 and walking only one. All of the Angels scoring that was necessary took place in the first inning when a Torii Hunter single scored Erick Aybar, who had led the game off with a double. three more runs crossed the plate in the first and then the goose eggs followed - not another run scored and the Angels offense actually looked like its recently wimpy self. Aybar left three runners on base and Peter Bourjos stranded four, but Hank Conger got the CERA crown. Even Russell Branyan got a lousy hit and a run batted in.

The Angels are now 4,000 - 4,039 after 69 games into their 51st season. Here is to 4,000 more Angels victories in your lifetime!
