Worth noting

• Angels shortstop Erick Aybar and first-base coach Alfredo Griffin were honored on the field prior to Friday's game for being part of the champion Dominican Republic team in the World Baseball Classic earlier this spring. Aybar drove in the game-winning run against Team USA and finished with a .333 batting average. Griffin has served as a coach for his native country in all three installments of the tournament.
