Jered Weaver gets 1,000th strikeout

ANAHEIM -- Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver became the eighth player in franchise history with 1,000 career strikeouts on Monday night, getting Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick to swing through a changeup in the sixth inning.

The 29-year-old right-hander received a standing ovation as the milestone flashed on the Angel Stadium video board and again as he walked off the mound at the end of the frame.

With the strikeout, Weaver and older brother Jeff became the sixth set of siblings to record 1,000 career strikeouts.
