• Peter Bourjos, out since April 29 with a strained left hamstring, went 1-for-3 in his first rehab game for Class A Inland Empire on Monday, hitting a triple and making a running catch at the warning track in center field. Bourjos could return this week.
• As part of their ongoing efforts to keep children out of gangs, the Angels had 1,300 at-risk kids -- ages 9-13, in grades 4-8 and representing 34 schools in Orange County -- come out for Monday's game as a reward for good behavior. Howie Kendrick and Josh Hamilton talked to the kids, who showed up four hours before the game and sat behind the Angels dugout.
• Before Monday's series finale against the Astros, the Angels had four local cancer survivors throw out a ceremonial first pitch. Tracey Arritt, 46, Carol Armenta, 53, and Shawna Hill, 43, recovered from breast cancer; Gabriel Sanchez, 32, battled back from lymphoma. Andy Enfield, the new men's basketball coach for the University of Southern California, also threw out a first pitch.
