His older brother almost had one back in the day, but Jered Weaver's no-hitter wasn't broken up in the late innings by a fly ball to right field like Jeff Weaver's was in 2002. Weaver's no-hitter is the second so far this season, trumped only by Philip Humber's perfect game. Humber's result might have been rarer, but Weaver's future seems brighter -- he's the Angels' ace and much more likely to follow up on his success. Is he a truly elite pitcher?
Weaver's stats this season: 4-0, 1.61 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, 45 strikeouts, and one no-hitter.
For once, the big story in Los Angeles wasn't how Albert Pujols has yet to hit a ball out of the park.
Playoffs for Angels?
The Angels are 10-15, which doesn't put them out of the playoff race yet, but it'll be tough to overcome the Rangers in their own division.
