Jered Weaver Ks 11; Angels Sweep Twins in Final Metrodome Visit

Final Score in Minnesota: Angels 13, Twins 4

The Angels shelved their small ball ways and blasted 3 HRs in their final regular season game ever in the Hubert Horatio Humphrey Metrodome. Kendry Morales belted 2 Homers batting from the Right side after prospect Sean Rodriguez had given the team a three run lead early with a blast of his own to deep deep Center Field.

The run support was enough for Jered Weaver, who set a personal single game high of 11 strikeouts in a solid outing marred only by coming out for the 7th inning and adding 2 ER onto what was previously a Quality Start. But if Mike Scioscia's crew was bent on sacrificing Wins for statistics, they would not be holding the biggest lead of any American league Division.

The Angels scored 35 runs and had 52 hits in the three game series. Friday's game was actually close, being decided in the 11th inning. With an off-day tomorrow, the bullpen will be ridiculously rested and ready to go heading into a three game series with the White Sox at Comiskeylar Field on Tuesday.
