By going 2-for-3 with his 28th homer and 25th double in Friday's 6-2 win over the White Sox, Mike Trout reached a couple of milestones. He became the third player in Angels history to record 25-plus homers, 25-plus doubles and 25-plus steals in a single season, along with Don Baylor (1977) and Darin Erstad (2000). And he became the fourth rookie in the last 48 years to score 120 runs. The three others were Ichiro Suzuki (2001), Nomar Garciaparra (1997) and Dick Allen ('64).
Angels reserve outfielder Peter Bourjos has been bothered by flu-like symptoms since Wednesday. Bourjos pinch-ran in the sixth inning on Thursday, but was subbed out for Vernon Wells the next half-inning and hasn't started a game since Aug. 5. Bourjos said he's felt "achy, tired, low fever -- exhausted, really." He's feeling better, but is still not 100 percent.
Erick Aybar and Torii Hunter each came into Friday with a .342 batting average in the second half, which is tied for third in the American League.
