Angels’ Weaver Becomes AL’s First 20-Game Winner, Beats Texas

Sept. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Jered Weaver became the American League’s first 20-game winner after leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 7-4 victory over the Texas Rangers as the Major League Baseball regular season enters its final five days.

Weaver (20-4) gave up two runs and five hits in seven innings last night to beat Texas for the fourth straight time this season. He is the Angels’ first 20-game winner since Bartolo Colon had 21 in 2005.

“We’re not in a pennant race without him,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia told reporters. “You look at just what he’s done virtually every start. I don’t think there’s a more consistent pitcher in our league.”

The Angels (87-70) are two games behind the Oakland Athletics (89-68) in the race for an American League wild-card berth.
