Different game, same results. It was almost a complete carbon copy of Weaver's last start against the Blue Jays. Once again, the Bluebirds didn't have an answer for Weaver's breaking ball, and all they could muster up was five hits all evening.

I'll give credit to Jered Weaver. He is very quietly putting together an amazing season with the Angels, thanks to a 5-2 record and an impressive 2.26 ERA. Weaver also leads all American League pitchers with 6.661 hits per 9 IP.

The Blue Jays will be pleased that they don't have to face Weaver again this year, because the young righty has only surrendered six total hits to the Jays in two starts this season. Just like Sunday's game against Jon Lester, this was a case of the Blue Jays running into a really great pitcher who has performed particularly well against them.

Brian Tallet will do his best Ron Burgundy impression later today, and hopefully bring us some afternoon delight with a win over the Angels. Skyrockets in flight …
