Weaver's no-hitter

Angels ace Jered Weaver on Wednesday night threw the 10th no-hitter in Angels franchise history.

In the course of a 9-0 win over the Twins, a runner to reach via passed ball in the second (although he had already struck out), and then Weaver walked a batter in the seventh. In the final at-bat of the night, Alexi Casilla drove Weaver's offering to the warning track in right, but Torii Hunter tracked it down.

On the night, Weaver threw 121 pitches, 77 of which were strikes. He struck out nine and walked one.

It's the 10th time the Twins have been no-hit in their history. It's also the second straight season in which an Angel has thrown a no-no. Last season, it was Ervin Santana who held the Indians hitless on July 27 of last year. Wednesday night's historic effort dropped Weaver's 2012 ERA to 1.61.
