Weaver vs. Weaver

The Dodgers’ Jeff Weaver and Angels’ Jered Weaver, both graduates of Simi Valley High, are scheduled to pitch against each other for the first time Saturday night in the Freeway Series in Anaheim.
It will be the 21st time in major-league history that two brothers have started against each other and the first since Alan and Andy Benes faced off in 2002.
“It’s a chance to share the same mound on the same day and not many can say that,” Jeff Weaver told MLB.com. “It’s a moment we won’t forget. It’s pretty special regardless of the outcome.”
Weaver said his parents had canceled plans to attend a relative’s wedding Saturday in Temecula to be at the game.
“I wouldn’t want to be the people sitting around them during the course of the game,” he said.
Weaver said the best outcome would be if both brothers came out with the score tied and leaving the bullpens to decide the game.
