Jered Weaver Not Perfect Enough as Angels Errors Doom Ace

Final Score in Los Angeles of Anaheim: Rays 4, Angels 3 ... Jered Weaver only allowed one earned run but 3 other runs were scored under his watch and the Angels handed the rubber game of their series with the Rays to Joe Maddon and David Price. A little throwing error in the first inning and two passed balls by catcher Ryan Budde led to the demise of the Anaheim crew. Weaver was masterful, striking out 12 Rays in 7.1 innings pitched. But the bats producing 3 runs could not overcome what the gloves gave away.

Howie Kendrick looked like he wanted to win, hitting two singles and an RBI double, but with DH Mike Napoli striking out three times, Scioscia countered the futility with Hideki Matsui... only to see the big offseason acquisition ground out weakly to end the 8th inning. Meanwhile Vladimir Guerrero is 2 for 4 with a solo homer and 2 runs scored tonight in Texas.
