Jered Weaver CGSO + Juan Rivera 2 HRs = Angels SWEEP!

Final Score: Angels 6, Padres 0.

The Angels seem to be jelling into a successful one-upsmanship. Juan Rivera hit two homeruns in Sunday's game, a day after Torii Hunter hit three. Jered Weaver went 9 innings for a complete game shutout after Joe Saunders had gone 8.1 last night.

The victim of this new standard of living in Anaheim was the San Diego Padres ... Swept a hundred miles from home.

The Angels played the three game series in a rejuvenated manner, with fewer mishaps than in recent weeks, aware that Howie Kendrick and Jose Arredondo have been sent down to the minors and probably quite aware that Tony "The Ninja" Reagins could pull a trade at any moment.

For all the talk about the weaker National League West, the team is on the schedule and the Angels showed up to play them. Jered Weaver left no doubt about what a first round draft pick can deliver and who the ace of the staff is
