Weaver limits Tucson in Bees debut

TUCSON, Ariz. — Jered Weaver was outstanding in his Triple-A debut on Saturday afternoon, as the Salt Lake Bees beat the Sidewinders 7-3 in Tucson.

Weaver (1-0), one of the Angels' top prospects, threw just 83 pitches over seven innings and allowed just one run on two hits with eight strikeouts and no walks. He faced 24 Tucson batters and went to a three-ball count once.

Brian Specht put the Bees ahead in the second inning with a two-run double, and Erick Aybar drove home Specht with a single. Salt Lake scored four more runs in the third on a run scoring single by Specht, a two run single by Aybar and an RBI single by Howie Kendrick.

Aybar finished with two hits and three RBIs, which now gives him eight RBIs in the first three games of the season. Specht added three hits and three RBIs for the Bees, who have opened the season with three straight wins.
