Angels' Jered Weaver Throws No-Hitter Against Minnesota Twins

Los Angeles Angels right-hander Jered Weaver threw a no-hitter on Wednesday night, limiting the Minnesota Twins to just two runners on a walk and a dropped third strike in a 9-0 victory.

The no-hitter is the tenth in Angels history, including a combined no-hitter by Mark Langston and Mike Witt in 1990. Between 1973 and 1975, Nolan Ryan threw four no-hitters for the Angels. Just think about that for a second.

But this isn't about Ryan, this is about Jered Weaver, who got Alexi Casilla on a line drive to right field for the final out of the game. It might have been the hardest-hit pitch of the night, but it fell safely into Torii Hunter's glove to complete the no-hitter. Weaver threw 122 pitches on the night, striking out nine batters and walking one.

Weaver's parents were in attendance for the no-hitter, and they joined Weaver on the field after the game.
