Angels Take Final Game of Series 25 Jul 13

Jered Weaver threw eight shutout innings and Albert Pujols drove in the game’s lone run, as the Angels avoided a three-game sweep against the Twins with a 1-0 win at Angel Stadium.  Weaver yielded only two hits while striking out nine to even his record at 5-and-5.  Ernesto Frieri [[ free-AIR-ee ]] stranded runners on the corners to preserve the lead and earn his 25th save.  The Halos halted a three-game slide.  Mike Pelfrey was saddled with the loss despite scattering five hits and only one run in six strong innings.  Minnesota is 4-and-2 since the All-Star break.
