Scouting Report:
Angels: Weaver was solid in beating the Red Sox for the first time in his career on Monday night at Fenway Park, going 5 2/3 innings and yielding three earned runs on six hits. He struck out four, including two in a row to leave a runner stranded at third before the Angels rallied with six runs for the win. Weaver had no issues with a shoulder blade knot that had flared up in his previous start. He's 2-0 in two career outings against the Yankees with a 3.27 ERA, both those appearances coming at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees: Mussina had gone three games without a walk before issuing a free pass to Baltimore's Brian Roberts in the first at-bat on Monday. And even though Mussina escaped the first inning with no runs -- Roberts was thrown out at the plate trying to score on Nick Markakis' double -- the Orioles tagged him for four runs in the second. He allowed six runs, the most he's yielded since May 20, in five innings, his shortest outing since May 24. Mussina is 15-9 with a 3.71 ERA in his career against the Angels.
