Worth noting

Josh Hamilton went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's finale, extending his hitting streak to a season-high 14 games and finishing his first year in Anaheim with a .250 batting average -- 33 points higher than where he was 36 games earlier.

"To where I was a month and a half ago, it's something to be proud of," Hamilton said. "It wasn't the year I wanted, but you talk about finishing strong, and I felt like I finished a lot better. Obviously still not my caliber of play, but a lot better than it was."

• Trout's solo homer in the first inning -- his fourth against Yu Darvish and 27th on the year -- gave him 190 hits in 2013, joining Ty Cobb and Lenny Dykstra as the only players since 1900 with at least 190 hits, 100 walks and 30 steals in a season. Trout also drew his AL-leading 110th walk, joining Tony Phillips (113 in 1995) and Troy Glaus (112 in 2000) as the only players to reach that number in Angels history.

Trout's .432 on-base percentage is a new franchise record, passing Tim Salmon and Chili Davis, both of whom posted a .429 mark in 1995. Trout and Willie Mays are the only players with two seasons of a .320 batting average, 25 homers and 30 steals -- at any age, and not necessarily back-to-back.
