Twins Vs. Angels: Jered Weaver Has A No-Hitter Through 5 Innings

The 6-17 Minnesota Twins are on their way to losing their third straight game and eighth in their last nine, but they're also well on their way to being no-hit by 2011 Cy Young candidate Jered Weaver, who is a passed ball strikeout away from perfection through five innings on Wednesday night.

Worse, the Twins actually don't have a hit since the third inning of Tuesday night's loss. The Angels on the other hand are putting together their best game of the season with 13, already a season high through five innings.

Liam Hendriks got the start for the Twins and lasted only two-plus innings, allowing six runs on nine hits. After Matt Maloney got the final two outs of the third inning after giving up a measly hit, Alex Burnett relieved him and promptly gave up a three-run homer to Howie Kendrick in the next half.

Weaver just took the mound in the sixth with six strikeouts through five and no walks. Clete Thomas, who has struck out 15 out of his last 18 at bats, will leadoff for the Twins.
