ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Jered Weaver and Jon Lester both made their big league debuts in 2006. Both have pitched a no-hitter, both are three-time All-Stars.

One glaring difference: Lester has two World Series rings, Weaver has none.

Friday night marked the first time they have started against each other in the majors, and Weaver outpitched Lester to lead the Los Angeles Angels over Oakland 4-0 and extend their AL West lead over the A's to three games.
