American League Game Summary - Minnesota at LA Angels of Anaheim



(Wednesday, July 24th)

Final Score: LA Angels of Anaheim 1, Minnesota 0

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Jered Weaver tossed eight scoreless innings and Albert Pujols drove in the lone run in the first inning, as Los Angeles nipped Minnesota, 1-0, in the finale of a three-game set.

Weaver (5-5) yielded only two hits and one walk while striking out nine batters for the Angels, who avoided a sweep and halted a three-game losing streak.

Ernesto Frieri stranded runners on the corners in the ninth inning, and picked up his 25th save.

Mike Pelfrey (4-8) was the hard-luck loser, scattering five hits and one run over six strong innings for the Twins, who suffered their second loss in the last eight.

"Mike gave us a great chance to win, but Jered kept us off balance. We just couldn't find a way to score," noted Twins manager Ron Gardenhire.

Frieri walked Clete Thomas to kick off the final frame and hit Doug Bernier. Justin Morneau then grounded into a double play. Frieri let his pop fly to the mound drop then threw to first, and following that, Bernier was caught in a rundown between first and second before being tagged out. Thomas, though, was allowed to reach third.

Ryan Doumit also drew a walk, but Frieri recovered to fan Chris Herrmann and end the contest.

"I felt good the whole outing. Frieri came in and closed the door," Weaver said. "I think I would have gone to a different base to begin with, but it worked out."

The Angels provided Weaver all the offense he needed during their first turn at the plate. J.B. Shuck singled to start the frame, stole second and came in on a Pujols base hit.

Weaver, who tossed a no-hitter last season against the Twins, allowed a Bernier single in the first, walked Doumit in the seventh and gave up a single to Aaron Hicks in the eighth.

Pelfrey, on the other hand, retired seven in a row and eight of nine after Pujols, and did not allow a runner past second from there for the remainder of his outing.

Game Notes

Weaver improved to 4-1 with a 1.32 ERA over his last six starts ...
