Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's 4-3 win over the Athletics.

Calhoun -- who normally is moved down in the order against southpaws -- was allowed to lead off against left-handed starter Brett Anderson, and he rewarded manager Mike Scioscia's decision with his 16th home run of the season and second in as many games. Don't let the 30-year-old's mediocre season line fool you, as he has been one of the Angels' hottest bats since returning from the disabled list June 18, posting a .291/.358/.646 slash line with 15 long balls over that 44-game span.
