Angels Face No-Hitter Hangover

No pressure for Dan Haren - all he has to do is provide the encore for Jered's Weaver's no-hitter last night.

The righty goes for the Angels against the Blue Jays, a night after Weaver's gem.

Los Angeles tries to work back into contention after a slow start (10-15 mark) as they face the 14-11 Blue Jays in MLB betting action at Angel Stadium.

Brandon Morrow gets the ball in front of a hostile crowd for the Blue Jays on this day; he's 2-1 on the season. The Angels, meanwhile, will counter with Haren, who will be looking to improve on his 1-1 mark.
