Worth noting

• Josh Hamilton was not in Sunday's starting lineup but was available off the bench as Scioscia wanted to give the outfielder some rest.

• Mike Trout has reached base in 34 consecutive games. Trout also had a 33-game streak earlier in the season and is the only player in Angels history to record two streaks of 33 games or more in one season.

• The Angels requested waivers on veteran outfielder Brad Hawpe -- who was designated for assignment last Monday -- for the purpose of granting him his unconditional release.
