Weaver’s first inning was an ERA-buster


Just a couple of things. The Shock are ahead of Stockton 37-34 at the end of three.

And Jeff Weaver faced nine batters, got one out and six scored (only because Sean White came in and doused the flames), in the first inning. The M's are losing 8-3 to Gil Meche and the Royals. And, yes, the Safeco fans were booing Weaver as he left. Though, in reality they weren't booing him as much as they were booing Bill Bavasi for signing him.
