Jered Weaver pulled an inside job on the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night. On a scorcher of a 103-degree evening, the Angels ace altered his pregame routine drastically, long tossing on a sliver of shade in the outfield but warming up indoors on a batting-cage mound.

Weaver also took two bags of intravenous fluids before the game — another first — and delivered one of his best starts at the Ballpark in Arlington, a 61/3-inning, two-run, five-hit effort in a 6-2 Angels victory that improved him to 14-1 with a 2.29 earned-run average and extended his winning streak to eight.
