Worth noting

• Vernon Wells snapped out of an 0-for-16 funk since coming off the disabled list on Saturday, going 3-for-3 with a two-run homer and an RBI single. The game gave him another start against Mariners left-hander Jason Vargas on Sunday -- ultimately going 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly in the 4-1 loss.

"That was the most comfortable we've seen him in the box since he put on an Angel uniform," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Hopefully it's something he can build on. You play better, you're going to play more."

Asked if Wells could work himself back into more of an everyday role if he gets on a roll, Scioscia said: "We're going to take this one day at a time."
