Angels turn to Weaver in opener with Orioles

Jered Weaver is 11-6 with a 3.36 ERA this season.
Baltimore, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - Jered Weaver played the role of stopper for Los Angeles in the finale of a series against Baltimore nearly a week ago. This time around, the Angels will look for their ace to get them off on the right foot Tuesday evening as Weaver gets the call for the opener of a three- game series with the Orioles. Weaver is 11-6 with a 3.36 ERA this season. The AL East-leading Orioles, meanwhile, followed up their season victory over the Angels by taking two of three from Seattle, going 6-4 on a 10-game road trip. Baltimore will play its next six at home and will again counter Weaver with right-hander Chris Tillman, who did not get a decision in last Wednesday's meeting. The 26-year-old is 2-0 with a 1.74 ERA in three career starts versus the Angels, but comes into this rematch a mere 1-5 despite a 2.89 ERA in nine outings at home on the year. The Orioles have won seven of their last 10 versus the Angels.  Full Story
