Worth noting

• Zack Greinke gave up four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out five in seven innings against the Indians during Tuesday night's 9-6 victory. It gave Greinke his first win in an Angels uniform and snapped an eight-start winless streak, dating back to June 27 while with the Brewers.

• To kick off Anniversary Week -- a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the 2002 World Series -- the Angels invited former closer Troy Percival to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Tuesday's game. Garret Anderson will do the honors on Wednesday.

• Over his last couple of games, Albert Pujols has gone 4-for-7 with two homers and six RBIs, giving him a .280 batting average with 26 homers and 82 RBIs on the year. In the six games before that, Pujols was 1-for-23.
