Worth noting

• Albert Pujols' third-inning home run Tuesday shortened the list of teams he has yet to hit a home run against to two -- the Orioles and his former club, the Cardinals.

• Kole Calhoun made his Major League debut in Tuesday's 5-0 win, checking in as a defensive replacement in right field to relieve Mark Trumbo before the bottom of the ninth.

• Angels catcher Chris Iannetta is still wearing a guard on his right wrist, on which he had surgery May 11 to knock him out for 6-8 weeks.

"I can't do anything," he said. "Just stay in shape."

Reliever LaTroy Hawkins (broken right pinkie) continues to throw lightly off flat ground but is also weeks away from getting back.
