Stat Line Of The Night — 5/2/12 — Jered Weaver
We are just about one month into the 2012 MLB season and already we have been treated to two no-hitters. The first was of the perfect-game variety, as Phil Humber was flawless against the Seattle Mariners on April 21st. The second came last night, as the Angels’ Jered Weaver came just short of a perfect game of his own, but was still good enough to record his first career no-hitter.
Weaver allowed only two base-runners the entire game, and one of those was the result of a passed ball on strike three to the Twins’ Chris Parmelee with two outs in the second inning. The Angels’ ace threw a total of 121 pitches, striking out nine batters and walking one during the 9-0 victory.
After finishing second in Cy Young voting to Justin Verlander last season, Weaver is building himself quite the resume early on in 2012, as he is now 4-0 with a 1.61 ERA and 45 strikeouts in his first six starts. And you can bet last night’s no-hitter will be at the top of his Cy Young resume, as it earned him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Wednesday, May 2, 2012.
