Worth noting

• Since hitting coach Don Baylor returned June 25 from surgery for a fractured femur, the Angels have been in a deep groove. They lead the Majors in runs (102), batting average (.310), doubles (31), RBIs (96), on-base percentage (.361) and slugging (.479) while going 12-4.

• The Angels' 23-4 stretch at Angel Stadium is their best at home across 27 games in franchise history. They've won their past nine series at home.

Mike Trout, with 21 homers and 68 RBIs, is the first Angels hitter to go 20/60 in the power categories since Vladimir Guerrero (20/77) in his 2004 AL Most Valuable Player Award-winning season.

• Catcher Chris Iannetta has raised his average from .214 to .277 with a .323 stretch over his past 34 games.
