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.
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.
