Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver left his start against the New York Yankeesin the first inning Monday night after failing to record an out. The Angels announced Weaver suffered a lower-back injury. Weaver made a 1-0 pitch to Robinson Cano and bent over in apparent pain. He attempted to complete a warm-up pitch, but could barely get the ball to home plate before he limped off the field accompanied by manager Mike Scioscia. Weaver (6-1) was making his first appearance at Angel Stadium since his May 2 no-hitter against the Minnesota Twins. Weaver was 4-0 with an 0.83 ERA at home this season.
