    This was billed as a battle of the aces between Weaver and Darvish. Neither had a spectacular game, but it was still a fun battle between these two powerhouses.

    Josh Hamilton getting booed at every at bat was good and made for quality TV though. He did have a good game, but not enough as the Angels win this one.

    Entertaining, but very long Sunday night game.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • (on his elbow injury that forced him to leave the game)
      Jered Weaver: Pretty painful. It feels a little swollen in there. I can't move it around too good right now. It's strange. Kind of like jamming your thumb.

    • Yu Darvish: (through his interpreter) I didn't have everything today. It wasn't my 100 percent, but I had to grind it out. The reason I was able to do that was because of all the support from my teammates.
