On Monday, the Oakland Athletics kicked off an important three-game series against their division rivals the Los Angeles Angels. The A's ran into a brick wall in the form of Los Angeles ace Jered Weaver as they were shut out by a final score of 4-0.
They added two more runs on a single from Torii Hunter in the seventh inning, which was more than enough run support for Weaver.
Wever struck out nine A's batters in the four-hit, complete game shutout. Oakland starter Jarrod Parker allowed all four runs in 6.2 innings on nine hits and a walk. With the loss, the A's fall to third place in the American League West.
