36-year old lefty reliever Scott Downs has bumped 24-year old Jordan Walden from his closer’s job. Downs has pitched in 10 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-0 with 2 saves, a 0.00 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP. He has only given up 6 hits and 2 walks in his first 9 1/3 innings this year as he has been electric this year. He might keep the closer’s job for a while. Jordan Walden saved 32 games last year, but he appears lost so far in 2012. Walden has pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-1 with 1 save, a 8.31 ERA and a 2.08 WHIP. He will have to earn the closer’s job back by pitching well in middle relief.

The Angels jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the first four innings last night, to ease pressure on starting pitcher Jered Weaver. Weaver then went out and finished up the 10th no-hitter in Angels’ history. He walked only 1 batter and he whiffed 9, as he was simply downright nasty last night. He threw 77 of 121 (63.6) pitches for strikes as he was pounding the strike zone all night long. He is now 4-0 on the year. Howie Kendrick led the way offensively for the Angels last night as he was 4 for 4 with 3 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs. It was nice to see that Jered Weaver’s parents were at the game and his dad was sucking down a beer in the 9th inning as he appeared more than a little nervous. It was a special night for all involved in Anaheim last night!
