Jered Weaver tossed the tenth no-hitter in Angels’ history on Wednesday night, holding the Minnesota Twins to just two baserunners all night on a strikeout-passed ball and a walk. He struck out nine and even laughed in the face of superstition by relieving himself taking a piss right before taking the mound for the ninth inning.
The Minnesota Twins are a horrible, horrible baseball team right now, having lost eight of their last nine and they are without a hit since the third inning of Tuesday night’s game, but Weaver probably would’ve thrown a gem against most teams. We have the final out below, which was probably the hardest hit ball all night [via SportsGrid]:
Weaver had a game score of 95, which would rank this amongst the 27-36 range of no-hitters and most closely in line with Vida Blue’s for the Oakland A’s in 1970. The last no-hitter with a game score of 95 was Justin Verlander in 2007 against the Milwaukee Brewers. For what it’s worth, Phil Humber’s perfect game two weeks ago was scored a 96. All right!
