Worth noting

Hector Santiago was listed on the bullpen sheet prior to Sunday's game, because Monday's off-day would allow Scioscia to push him back. Santiago is tentatively slated to start on Thursday, putting him on seven days' rest. C.J. Wilson would pitch Tuesday and Jered Weaver would take the ball on Wednesday, in Houston.

• Infielder Grant Green was called up on Sunday, with right-hander Cory Rasmus optioned to the Minors after pitching the first three innings on Saturday. The move was a formality, because Rasmus wouldn't have been available for the series finale and will return when rosters expand in September.
