Jered Weaver‘s bid for back-to-back no-hitters lasted into the third inning Monday night, when, after a leadoff walk, Minnesota’s Erik Komatsu singled on the 10th pitch of his at-bat. Weaver ended up allowing one run and three hits over six innings in the Angels’ 8-3 victory.
Komatsu had two of the hits, his first two since joining the Twins.
Weaver, who threw 121 pitches in thew no-hitter five days ago, was given the quick hook tonight with the Angels up 5-1 after 6 1/2 innings. He threw 89 pitches, 53 of them strikes. He finished with just two strikeouts after entering the game with 45 K’s in 44 2/3 innings on the season.
But while Weaver might not have been quite at his best tonight, he was good enough. He’s allowed just one run in his last three starts, lowering his ERA to 1.60, and he’s 5-0 on the season.
