Worth noting

• Pujols was drilled by a ball in the top of his back while running to second base when Twins first baseman Joe Mauer threw to second on Wednesday. Pujols then tripped on the bag and hobbled back, seemingly favoring his left ankle. He stayed in the game after being checked on by Angels trainers. "I'm all right," Pujols said postgame.

"I don't know if he twisted his knee or his ankle coming around," Scioscia said. "He said he was fine. He stumbled and fell to the side a little bit, but he was fine."

• The Angels signed right-hander Sean White to a Minor League deal on Monday. White, 31, posted a 4.16 ERA in 105 appearances through three years in the big leagues, all with the Mariners. He's currently pitching in Triple-A Salt Lake.

• Morales has hit safely in seven of his last eight games and is batting .406 in that span. Callaspo has had two-hit games in four of his last five starts. Trout is batting .355 with five doubles, a homer, four RBIs and six runs scored in his last eight contests.
