The Angels' Jered Weaver and Jose Arredondo joined an exclusive list of pitchers who have allowed no hits and lost after the Dodgers won 1-0 on Saturday night. Other no-hit losers were: Boston's Matt Young in 1992, Andy Hawkins of the Yankees in 1990, Steve Barber and Stu Miller of Baltimore in 1967, and Ken Johnson of Houston in 1964.


Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run double in the bottom of the ninth and Detroit overcame Todd Jones' blown save to beat the Colorado Rockies 7-6 and bring its record to .500 for the first time this season. The Tigers have won four straight and 14 of 17.


Brandon Webb returned to his All-Star form, striking out eight and giving up two runs in six innings as the Diamondbacks beat the Florida Marlins 6-2. Webb (12-4) gave up 11 earned runs in his previous two starts, both losses.
