Rangers fall to Angels, drop to 2nd place

Jered Weaver became the major league's first five-game winner as he struck out eight in a complete game, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.
Howie Kendrick and Vernon Wells homered for the Angels, who have
won 11 of their last 14 games. Jeff Mathis drove in a run on a
suicide squeeze bunt and also scored.
It was the fifth career complete game for Weaver (5-0), who
limited Texas to one run on six hits to lower his ERA to 1.23 this
season. The right-hander had no walks while throwing 80 of his 119
pitches for strikes.
The defending American League champion Rangers have lost six of
eight.
