Instead, Weaver was a late scratch due to illness and rookie Tyler Chatwood started in his place at Tropicana Field. The Rays took advantage of Weaver's absence as they chased Chatwood after he allowed five earned runs on nine hits in four innings, jumping out to a 5-0 lead.

But the Angels, despite being approximately +130 underdogs at most sports books after the pitching change, battled back for a 6-5 victory as Tampa Bay was unable to finish the deal. The win gave Los Angeles the series as they won two of the three road games.

Weaver, who is 6-0 with a 0.99 earned-run average, is expected to start Monday night versus the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Angels -120 favorites with Weaver on the mound. The over-under is set at 8.
