• Erick Aybar entered Tuesday with six walks in his previous nine games, which is high for the Angels' switch-hitting shortstop. Over his previous 73 games, Aybar had walked eight times.

• The Angels Baseball Foundation Cooking Challenge, hosted each of the previous four years by Angels Radio AM 830, has been postponed. The event was slated to take place Aug. 7, with Ernesto Frieri, Hank Conger, Michael Kohn, Garrett Richards and Howie Kendrick competing.

• Mike Trout went 4-for-4 with two walks on Tuesday and has reached base in 10 consecutive plate appearances. The club record is 12, set by Bobby Grich in 1984.

• Howie Kendrick collected his 1,000th career hit with a two-run single in the eighth inning, making him just the ninth player in franchise history to reach that milestone.
