Stat Line Of The Night — 8/6/12 — Jered Weaver
Jered Weaver of the Los Angeles Angels has been having himself a Cy Young-worthy season, and he added to his already impressive resume during last night’s start against the Oakland Athletics.
Weaver entered the game with an MLB-best 14-1 record and a 2.29 ERA, to go along with two complete games and one shutouts on the season. He would improve his numbers in each and every one of those categories, as he pitched yet another complete-game shutout, allowing only four hits and no walks while striking out nine batters during the Angels’ 4-0 victory.
With the win, the Angels leapfrog the Oakland A’s for the final AL Wild Card spot. As for Weaver, he continues to cement himself as the top candidate for the AL Cy Young award while earning himself “The Stat Line of the Night” for Monday, August 6, 2012.
