Weaver, Angels shut down Red Sox
The Angels earned two victories in the three-game series against the Red Sox, who are just getting started on a 10-game West Coast road trip.
Lackey, Weaver’s former mentor with the Angels and the winning pitcher of Game 7 in the Angels’ 2002 World Series championship, pitched well in defeat. He went seven innings, struck out nine and gave up just five hits. Trouble was, two of those hits left the ballpark and were the difference in the game.
After escaping a first-inning jam, Weaver settled in. He didn’t allow a hit between Ryan Lavarnway’s one-out, infield single in the second inning and Mike Napoli’s leadoff single in the seventh.
... Trumbo was not in the starting lineup for the second time this season. It was just a day off for Trumbo, who was hitless in his previous nine at-bats, his season average dipping to .247. Brad Hawpe made his fifth start of the season (third at first base) in Trumbo’s place. Hawpe went 0-for-3, making him 1-for-17 as a starter this year.
