Jered Weaver Dominates Dodgers in Angels Return

WEAVE - Jeff Gross

Things are better for the Angels a little more South down Interstate Five.

Jered Weaver had a perfect game into the fifth inning against the Dodgers and ended up allowing just one run in six innings pitched, striking out seven along the way. After almost two months on the disabled list, he walked no one.

Mark Trumbo hit a two-run home run off of starter Chris Capuano in the bottom of the fifth inning to break a 1-1 tie. Trumbo added a sac fly insurance run in the seventh to lead an Angels offense that was let down in the first inning when Howie Kendrick struck out looking in the first inning with the bases loaded.

Ernesto Frieri came into a 4-1 game in the bottom of the ninth inning and gave up a solo home run to Adrian Gonzalez and then one to Scott Van Slyke - making Trumbo's late sac fly all that more important. Frieri got his eleventh save of the season but, much like the haircut he got this afternoon that he tweeted pics of, this one did not look good at all.

Erick Aybar had three hits and some great glove work in the field. He also drove in the first run of the game, doubling home Chris Iannetta.

Weaver threw 86 pitches, 57 for strikes and looked like the Ace of the staff that desperately needs one. It was Weaver's first start since fracturing the elbow on his left (non-throwing) arm in his second start of the season on April 7. If this was him rusty, watch out!
