Tonight was a historic night for baseball. After the majority of the day being dominated by hitting, with three walk-off homers, Jered Weaver proved it is still an era full of dominant pitching as he didn't give up a single hit to a pretty solid Twins lineup.

Jered has been dominant this year and throughout most of his career, but never had thrown a no-hitter. However, tonight everything changed for the Angel's ace. For a team struggling and under-achieving, Jered Weaver may have given them the boost they needed to get back in contention. With Weaver, C.J. Wilson and Dan Haren as the top three guys, they look pretty solid. 

Now, Weaver's fastball wasn't blowing by people. He was throwing it high 80s to low 90s, but it was all about placement for him. The home plate umpire was giving him the high strike and Weaver took advantage. The offense jumped out to an early lead and that soon became irrelevant as the focus was no longer on the offensive side. Jered Weaver was on his way to making history. The last out was nearly out of the park, but it managed to fall just short on the warning track. Tori Hunter made the catch and that was it. The celebration began!

Congratulation to Jered and the Angels on a monumental night in the game we call baseball. Thanks for reading. Don't forget to leave a comment about your thoughts on Weaver's no-no.
