L.A. Angels Pitcher Fires No-Hitter

Jered Weaver tossed the second no-hitter of the young baseball season by pitching the L.A. Angels past Minnesota 9-0.

Weaver struck out nine and walked one. The Twins never came close to getting a hit against the All-Star right-hander.

An 18-game winner a year ago for the Angels, Weaver joined the Chicago White Sox pitcher Phil Humber in the no-hit club of 2012. Humber tossed a perfect game against Seattle on April 21.

It was the 10th no-hitter in Angels’ history. Weaver is the sixth Angel hurler to do the trick. Nolan Ryan threw four no-hitters while pitching for the Angels.
