Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Anaheim, California
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Brandon Morrow wasn't quite as stingy as Jered Weaver was the night before on the Angel Stadium mound. The Toronto Blue Jays' right-hander gave up three more hits than Weaver -- while matching his nine scoreless innings.Morrow earned his second career shutout with 102 pitches, facing one batter over the minimum, and batterymate J.P. Arencibia hit a three-run homer in the third inning to lead the Blue Jays to a 5-0 win on Thursday night in the opener of an 11-game road trip.

The game lasted just 2 hours, 11 minutes ... The Angels will be sending Weaver's and batterymate Chris Iannetta's jerseys and one of the authenticated baseballs Weaver threw in his no-hitter to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. ... The Angels' superstitious TV announcing team of Victor Rojas and Mark Gubicza did not mention the phrase "no-hitter" on the air Wednesday night until RF Torii Hunter caught the final out. Rojas and Gubicza handled Ervin Santana's no-hitter last year the same way.
