Did you think he was going 30-0??

The Angels traveled to Boston Monday night and SP Jered Weaver lost his first game of the season. He’s still 6-1 so it’s not the end of the world. 3B Kevin Youkilis returned to the Boston lineup and went 2-4 with 2 RBIs. The bad news is OF Jacoby Ellsbury left with a left knee contusion. He was 2-4 with 3 runs scored and 2 SBs before leaving the game.
