Sox lose third in row; Weaver shuts down Boston.

Byline: Beth Harris

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Jered Weaver struck out eight in a strong season debut and the grief-stricken Los Angeles Angels, still mourning the shocking death of rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart, beat the Boston Red Sox, 6-3, last night.

It was the Angels' ninth consecutive regular-season victory against the Red Sox, but the joy over this one was muted by prevailing sadness.

The 22-year-old Adenhart and two of his friends were killed when their car was broadsided early Thursday in a crash caused by a suspected drunk driver who was charged with three counts of murder Friday.

"Everyone has a heavy heart," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said before the game. "We've really just started a process that we're going to take a while to walk through."
