Red Sox beat up Jered Weaver and dismantled the Angels' bullpen, taking the first of their four-game set. In the mere two innings Anaheim's relief had the mound, they allowed six runs off of five hits. Clay Buchholz started the Angels, pitched six and two-thirds, surrendering two runs.
Someone finally got to Weaver. It was the first start he's had this season that didn't end in a win. One of the major factors in that was pitch count—118 over just six innings. Given that pitchers are usually shooting between 12-15 per inning, an average of 20 is a bit high.
