Worth noting

Hector Santiago's left hand was "feeling good" on Saturday, one day after taking a Josh Donaldson liner off it in the fifth. Santiago was checked on by the Angels' training staff, then faced two more batters and got out of the inning before exiting his start with 98 pitches. Santiago is expected to make his next scheduled start on Wednesday.

• Right-handed hitter Collin Cowgill started in place of the left-handed-hitting Kole Calhoun against southpaw Jon Lester on Saturday, even though Calhoun is batting .345 in his last 13 games. Scioscia wanted to "give Kole a chance to freshen up."
