ST. LOUIS (AP) -Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver left after three innings against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday afternoon.
He allowed three runs on five hits, including a two-run home run to Albert Pujols in the third. He was checked by a trainer with two outs in the inning before getting Juan Encarnacion to ground out to first.
Weaver, replaced by Chris Bootcheck, missed all of spring training and was on the 15-day disabled list to start the regular season while recovering from biceps tendinitis. He was activated April 17 and had won his previous four decisions and five of six.
There was no immediate word on why Weaver left early. He is the third Angel taken out early over the past two days. Garret Anderson (leg) and Casey Kotchman (elbow) didn't finish Saturday's game.
