Angels, Weaver beat Yankees

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Angels scored three runs on five straight walks in the eighth inning after Jered Weaver escaped a based-loaded jam with no outs in the top half, and Los Angeles Angels beat the New York Yankees 4-1 on Monday night.

Yankees relievers Shawn Kelley (0-2), Matt Thornton and Preston Claiborne walked six overall in the eighth, the most walks in an inning by New York since 1990. The wild display came after manager Joe Girardi was ejected by plate umpire Laz Diaz for arguing a strike call in the top of the inning and engaging Diaz in a heated argument.

Weaver (3-2) allowed a run and six hits in eight innings, struck out seven and walked one while winning his third straight decision over four starts.

Weaver bounded off the mound pumping his fist and shouting in excitement after getting Derek Jeter to ground into an inning-ending double play in the eighth.
