Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Jered Weaver won his ninth consecutive start by pitching a four-hit shutout in the Angels' 4-0 triumph over the Oakland Athletics.

Weaver (15-1), who became the first 15-game winner in the majors this year, fanned nine without allowing a walk. It was the right-hander's second shutout this year and sixth of his career.

Weaver, who threw 80 of his 117 pitches for strikes, is 10-0 over his last 12 starts. The 10 straight wins established a career-best. His only loss came May 13 at Texas.

The Angels scored twice in the second and Torii Hunter had a two-run single in the eighth inning.

Jarrod Parker (7-6) gave up nine hits and four runs over 6 2/3 innings in Oakland's third straight loss.
