Angels report: Notes, quotes

The Sports Xchange
Notes, quotes · Roster · Inside pitch

--With Wednesday's victory, the Angels are batting .312 (273 for 874) in July. That would be their highest average for a month since they hit .319 as a team in June 2007. Their five-run fifth inning Wednesday was the 13th time in the last 22 games they have scored four runs or more in an inning.

--This is the third time in Mike Scioscia's 10 seasons as manager that the Angels have won at least 60 of their first 100 games in a season and is just one win short of their record after 100 games last season, when they went on to the first 100-win season in franchise history.

--With the non-waiver trade deadline just a couple of days away, the Angels continued to be at the center of speculation regarding a possible trade for RHP Roy Halladay or LHP Cliff Lee. Angels GM Tony Reagins said he is involved in talks with "a number of clubs," but no deal appears imminent.

--RHP Sean O'Sullivan threw a no-hitter Tuesday for Triple-A Salt Lake in his first start since being demoted by the Angels. O'Sullivan had a perfect game through six innings, then walked the first batter in the seventh. That was the only baserunner he allowed. O'Sullivan (who is 3-0 in five starts with the Angels) struck out seven while throwing 122 pitches, 85 for strikes.

10 -- Hits by the Angels in their nine-run fourth inning against the Twins on July 25 (one short of the franchise record for hits in an inning).

"I've heard a few of them. But I probably haven't heard as many as have been out there." -- INF Brandon Wood on being mentioned in trade rumors.
