ANAHEIM, Calif. Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit - Heren Schoenen Zwart/Regenboog . -- There were days, plenty of them, when Jered Weaver would light up radar guns and blow fastballs past hitters.Now the years and the innings have taken their toll, forcing Weaver to reinvent himself as a control pitcher. It has not always been a smooth or successful process.Sunday, though, in the Angels 3-2 victory over the AL West-leading Texas Rangers, Weaver gave evidence of a starting pitcher who may yet have figured out a way to extend his career.Weave has a way of getting it done, manager Mike Scioscia said. He really knows his way around situations and knows his way around hitters.On a day when all the runs came via the solo homer, Weaver (11-11) might have come up with his best outing of the season. He gave up two solo home runs to Adrian Beltre, but otherwise kept the Rangers in check.Andrelton Simmons matched Beltre with two solo home runs -- he began the day with one homer this season.Yunel Escobar led off first for the Angels with the other solo shot off Colby Lewis (6-2).The rest was left to Weaver, who struck out a season-high eight in 6 2/3 innings. He allowed four hits and walked two.Im just glad I finally got this thing figured out, Weaver said. Every start it seems to be getting better.Weaver led the American League in strikeouts with 233 in 2010. He won 20 games two years later and 18 as recently as 2014.But the last two years have seen a noticeable drop in velocity. His fastball now hovers in the mid-80s mph. He struck out Texas second baseman Rougned Odor in the first with a 68 mph curveball.Its tough when your expectations are so high, Weaver said.Weaver has spent his entire career with the Angels and will become a free agent at the end of the season. He turns 34 next month, and no one is certain what awaits Weaver, or even if he wants to continue pitching.Well talk about that the last week of the season, he said.Neither is the team saying much about Weavers future.Were going to take this one step at a time, hopefully finish strong here in the next couple of weeks and then start to evaluate things and see whats going on, Scioscia said.After Escobar gave Weaver the early lead, Beltre homered in the second. Simmons put the Angels back ahead in the bottom half, then Beltre tied it back up with a home run in the sixth.It was Beltres fourth multihomer game of the season and 31st for his career. He has 29 home runs on the season.Simmons connected again in the sixth.For Lewis, it was his first start since going on the disabled list with a strained lat June 21.Kind of vintage Colby, Texas manager Jeff Banister said. Able to move the fastball around, use the curveball with the slider to get outs. Other than three pitches, in control of what he was wanting to do. It was nice to see. Were going to need Colby down the stretch.Lewis went 5 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks. He struck out five.Andrew Bailey, released by the Phillies last month and then signed by the Angels, pitched a perfect ninth to earn his third save.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: RHP Tony Barnette, the 32-year-old rookie whos become an unexpected key cog in the bullpen, has not pitched since Sept. 4 because of a mild oblique strain. Manager Jeff Banister said the injury was not serious enough to warrant a stint on the disabled list.Angels: RHP Matt Shoemaker, readmitted to the hospital Saturday after feeling pressure in the area where he was hit in the head by a line drive a week ago, was discharged Sunday after an additional CT scan. He had emergency brain surgery to relieve swelling in Seattle on Sept. 4.UP NEXTRangers: LHP Martin Perez (10-10) is scheduled to make his team-high 30th start of the season Monday when the Rangers open a three-game series in Houston. Perez has gone at least five innings in each of his previous 11 starts.Angels: RHP Ricky Nolasco (5-13) is slotted to start for the Angels when the Mariners open a three-game series in Anaheim Monday. Nolasco is 1-5 with a 4.30 ERA in his first seven starts with the Angels since being acquired from the Twins Aug. 1. Nike Air Vapormax Dames . Kozun faked to the forehand and beat Monsters starter, Calvin Pickard, pad side in the second round for the winner. Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4). Nike Shox Nederland . A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne. http://www.onlinenikeschoenenoutlet.nl/n...ke-shox-nz.html . The team said Saturday that Lopez was hurt during its 121-120 overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday. The Nets said they would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors. BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil -- Whitney Engen went to the Womens World Cup last year but didnt play in a single match. A year later at the Olympics, the 28-year-old American got her chance on a big stage.Engen was in the starting lineup for the 1-0 victory over France on Saturday night. While most of the attention was on United States goalkeeper Hope Solo, who made her 200th international appearance, Engen was steady at center back.Anytime you get the opportunity to put on our jersey and represent the United States is a tremendous honor. Obviously, the Olympics adds to that, Engen said. I was happy to get some minutes and get my feet wet in an international tournament.United States coach Jill Ellis made the move because defender Julie Johnston was out with a groin injury. Johnston is key to a stellar backline that is considered among the best in the game. During the World Cup last year, the group anchored by Solo went 540 minutes without conceding a goal.That Engen was so capably able to fill in on that solid line is testament to the U.S. teams depth.Mallory Pugh, the 18-year-old sensation who has been steadily winning playing time, was also held out of the match against France in Belo Horizonte because of an ankle injury in the group opener last week.Ellis later described Pughs availability for the match at 50-50. But she didnt need her. The team inserted Crystal Dunn into the lineup.Like Engen, Dunn was making her first start of the Olympics. In fact, both she and Engen were also making their first starts in a major tournament at the senior level. Allie Long, making just her 12th appearance with the senior team, got her second start.Those players are among 11 first-time Olympians on the U.S. national team, which has a decidedly different -- and younger -- look than the squad that won the World Cup.Veteran stars Abby Wambach and Lauren Holiday have retired. Sydney Leroux and Amy Rodriquez stayed home becaause of pregnancy. Nike Air Vapormax Heren. And the roster for Rio de Janeiro was also smaller, at 18 players, than the 23-player squad for the World Cup. So Ellis had to choose her players carefully with an eye on versatility.All 22 players that are here -- the 18 that were selected and the four reserves -- every single one of them could step on this field and play for this team, Engen said. So I knew I had a great cast around me and all I had to do is do my role and they would support me.While Engen was on the World Cup roster, Long stayed home last year, playing for the National Womens Soccer Leagues Portland Thorns. Dunn, the last player cut from the World Cup team, played for the Washington Spirit and was named the leagues most valuable player.The newcomers will be important as the Americans seek their fourth straight Olympic gold medal. Ranked No. 1 in the world, the United States is also vying to become the first to win and Olympics after earning a World Cup title.The team continues to wait for the return of veteran midfielder Meghan Rapinoe, who hasnt played since knee surgery late last year.Rapinoe, playing in her third Olympics, has looked strong in pregame warmups and could play as early as the quarterfinals.With the victory over France, the United States was assured a spot in the quarterfinals. Canada and host Brazil have also gone through to the knockout round with one match remaining in their groups.Weve got a great support staff here that keeps us ready no matter what, Engen said. And I think we knew coming into this tournament it was going to take 22 players to get the gold medal, and at the end of the day were all ready if our name is called.The United States will play Colombia on Tuesday in the final group match in Manaus, more than 1,700 miles away from Rio de Janeiro.
