Angels All-Star pitcher Jered Weaver pitched a Complete Game 6-hitter over the Seattle Mariners in front of 41,000+ on cap night at the Big A. He allowed one run, walked one and struck out six. In this era of relief specialists and closers, Weaver has 8 career Complete Games - that would be 24 in 1970s pitching. He entered the game with a 1.92 ERA. He left it with a 1.86 ERA. Can you say deadball era?

A three-run bottom of the third was the halo battage response to the M's scoring a run in the top of the third. Three consecutive batters plated three baserunners with a single, Sac Fly and a double.

Weaver was in trouble in the top of the 7th when there were runners on the corners but he, like many many many many pitchers this season, got Carlos Peguero to strike out to end the inning.

In the bottom of that inning the Angels got some insurance with two runs on another hit-after-hit rally. Weaver finished the night having thrown 117 pitches. He will likely throw substantially less than that on Tuesday when he appears on behalf of the American League, hopefully as the starter.
