Jered Weaver scattered seven hits to win his sixth straight start this season, and the Angels ended their Red Sox-induced four-game losing streak with a 5-0 win over Gio Gonzalez and the Athletics. Weaver walked one and struck out 10. He allowed only one runner as far as third base, lowering his ERA to a major league-best 0.99.
Weaver got his 70th career victory, reaching that total with a better winning percentage (.642) than anyone in the franchise’s 51-year history. The previous best was .588, by Nolan Ryan and Frank Tanana.
The A’s have totaled four runs in Gonzalez’s last four outings.
