Game 1 Monday, 6:05pm

Tyson Ross (2-4, 3.93 ERA) vs. Jered Weaver (3-4, 4.37 ERA)

Ross got a loss his last time out against the Chicago Cubs. He allowed three runs with 8 strikeouts. In his days with the Oakland Athletics, Ross has faced the Angels before. In 4 starts he has a 1.78 ERA. Most of his experience has come at Angels Stadium.

Weaver has been considered the ace of the Angels staff for years. His stuff has declined but he has become a savvy veteran pitcher. He has pitched at least 7 innings in his last three starts. He has won in three straight starts. He has a 1.13 ERA in two career starts against the Padres.

He has Derek Norris’ number, who is hitting .165 off of him in 9 plate appearances. Will Middlebrooks is 2 for 5 off of him.
