Weaver Fires No-Hitter

Houston's Jeff Weaver fired a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Dodger Stadium last block. Weaver, who is 10-9 with a disappointing 5.53 ERA this season, put it all together for one night. The right-hander faced 29 batters - just two over the minimum as Weaver only walked one while striking out five. The Astros selected Weaver in the fourth round in the 2003 draft after he was released from San Francisco after the 2002 season. Weaver was 35-33 over three seasons for the Giants.

This was the ninth no-hitter in Millennium League history. A complete listing of all the no-hitters can be found at the following link: MSL No-Hitters.
