Jeanmar Gomez gave up all the runs and most of the base runners in this game. Gomez lasted only three innings, giving up 6 earned runs on 7 hits and 3 walks. The Indians bullpen was outstanding in a meaningless stretch of innings, for Jered Weaver was just about perfect.
Weaver allowed his first hit in the fourth inning, a hard-hit single off the bat of Shin-Soo Choo. That was it for the Indians against Weaver. No runs, no walks, no more hits, no nothing. Weaver, who is having his best season for an underachieving Angels club, was as good as I've seen a pitcher throw against the Indians, beating out Felix Hernandez, the whole Oakland staff, and even Armando Galarraga.
Gomez got squeezed a bit in the early innings, and should have gotten out of the first with a lot less damage. But his control just wasn't there tonight; he struggled to get ahead of hitters. For a guy with just decent stuff, bad control will probably mean a bad outing.
