Worth noting

• Dan Haren felt good during his Thursday bullpen session and is set to start the series finale against the White Sox on Sunday.

• Mike Scioscia revealed pregame Thursday that second baseman Howie Kendrick was nursing a calf injury during Wednesday's game and that it was "part of the equation" for why he didn't use him in the ninth to pinch-run for Kendrys Morales, who was thrown out trying to score on a two-out single. "But I think when push came to shove," Scioscia added, "if we were down a run, we would've looked at some other things."

• During Thursday's 15-9 loss to the Rangers, Angels center fielder Mike Trout set a new Angels record with his 23rd and 24th consecutive successful stolen bases, breaking the mark of current Rangers first-base coach Gary Pettis, who stole 22 straight bases without getting caught in 1985. Trout leads the Majors in steals with 33, despite spending the first three weeks in the Minors.
