Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - B.J. Upton and the Tampa Bay Rays lit up Jered Weaver and the Angels en route to a 12-3 romp in the second meeting of a four- game series.
The Rays won the opener of the set, 7-0, on Thursday, marking the fourth time they shut out the Angels already this year.
On Friday, their bats shined against one of the best arms in the game in Weaver (15-3), who came in leading the AL in ERA.
After just three-plus innings, Weaver's ERA grew more than a half-run to 2.74 as he yielded nine runs on eight hits and two walks while losing consecutive starts for the first time in over a year.
Upton went 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI, Jose Molina also homered and drove in three runs and Ben Zobrist added a solo shot in the rout.
The offensive surge backed a quality start from James Shields (11-7), who gave up three runs on seven hits over six frames.
