Red Sox Go Scoreless, Drop Series to Angels
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Jered Weaver combined with three relievers on a five-hitter, All-Star Mike Trout and Hank Conger homered and the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Boston Red Sox 3-0 Sunday night for their 10th win in 12 games.
Weaver (3-4) allowed five hits, struck out six and walked two in 6 2-3 innings. It was his first outing since becoming a father on Friday, when he named his first child Aden David Weaver in honor of his late teammate and friend Nick Adenhart.
As he always does, Weaver scrawled the initials `NA’ into the mound before his first pitch of each inning.
Weaver beat former teammate John Lackey (6-6), whose three-game winning streak ended. Lackey gave up two runs and five hits in seven innings.
