Cards' Woes Continue in 5-1 Loss to AngelsANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Jered Weaver earned his second win of an injury-plagued season with help from a five-run second inning, and the Los Angeles Angels extended their winning streak to seven games last night with a 5-1 victory over St. Louis in the Cardinals' first game at Angel Stadium.
St. Louis was the only National League club that had never played at the "Big A," having hosted the three previous inter-league series between the teams in 2002, 2007 and 2010.
Three-time NL MVP Albert Pujols, who spent his first 12 major league seasons with the Cardinals before signing a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Angels in December 2011 as a free agent, played his first game against his former club and was 0-3 with two strikeouts and a walk as the designated hitter while Mark Trumbo started at first base.
