Weaver feted for no-hitter with weekly honors
MINNEAPOLIS -- Angels ace Jered Weaver was named American League Player of the Week on Monday, five days after he twirled the first no-hitter of his career against the Twins at Angel Stadium.

Weaver didn't just mow through the Twins' batting order without giving up a hit Wednesday night. He issued just one walk, put two runners on base (the other on a strikeout-passed ball), threw 16 first-pitch strikes, struck out a season-high nine batters and hardly allowed any hard-hit balls.

Weaver needed 121 pitches to nail down the 10th no-hitter in Angels history and the second in baseball this season, joining the perfect game of White Sox righty Philip Humber.

This marked the first time Weaver has been named Player of the Week.
