Extra Bases: Gimenez ignores Weaver's taunts

ARLINGTON, Texas -- When catcher Chris Gimenez took the mound as an emergency pitcher in the ninth inning of Thursday's 15-6 Rangers loss, he could hear razzing from Jered Weaver in the Angels' dugout. The last time Gimenez, a catcher-first baseman for the Rangers, pitched, it was in an Alaskan college summer league. Weaver, now the ace of the Angels' pitching staff, was a teammate. “He was reminding me that my earned run average back then was 36,’’ Gimenez said.
