Angels starter Jered Weaver looked a lot more comfortable in the third inning, getting ahead in the count with his fastball, then putting away the Yankees with off-speed stuff.

Weaver set down Derek Jeter, Johnny Damon and Mark Teixeira in order with a total of 10 pitches. He threw three straight fastballs to Teixeira, then retired him on a wicked, 79-mph curveball in the dirt.
