• By scoring two runs in the Angels' 5-4 win over the Mariners on Tuesday, Mike Trout tied the Angels' single-season record with 124, set by Vladimir Guerrero in 2004.

• For the second time in four days, Maicer Izturis started in place of Howie Kendrick at second base with a right-handed starter on the mound. Manager Mike Scioscia said the decision was made simply because lefties have hit Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez better than righties this year.

• On Saturday, Angels owner Arte Moreno gave Scioscia a public endorsement, telling MLB.com that he'd "100 percent" return next season. On Tuesday, Scioscia downplayed the significance of that within the clubhouse, saying: "I think these guys are focused on the task at hand and what we need to do. I don't think anything that was going on was a discussion to these guys, so now that it's resolved I don't think it's really a relief [for the players]."
