Angels, Weaver complete three game sweep of Seattle

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) – Chris Nelson drove in a pair of runs and Jered
Weaver tossed eight strong innings, as Los Angeles whipped Seattle, 7-1, to
sweep this three-game weekend series.

Kole Calhoun hit a two-run homer, while Mark Trumbo added two hits with an RBI
for the Angels, who successfully shook off a four-game losing streak which
included a sweep at the hands of Cleveland during the week.

Weaver (8-7) snapped a two-start losing skid, scattering three hits and one
run with eight strikeouts.

Dustin Ackley’s third-inning solo blast was the limit of offense for the
Mariners, who were coming off a series win against Oakland.

Aaron Harang (5-11) was dented for nine hits and seven runs over 5 2/3
innings, despite fanning seven and walking only two.
