--2B Howie Kendrick was 3-for-4 with a career-high five RBI -- two on a home run in the seventh inning. Since returning from a demotion to Triple-A, Kendrick is batting .383 (23-for-60) with 14 RBI in 17 games.

--OF Bobby Abreu drove in another run with an RBI single in the Angels' five-run fifth. That was his 52nd RBI in his last 52 games and his American League-leading 47th RBI since June 1.

--LHP Brian Fuentes did not allow a run in 19 appearances between May 30 and Monday's blown save against the Indians. But he hasn't retired any of the last eight batters he has faced (four each Monday and Tuesday against the Indians). Manager Mike Scioscia said Fuentes was unavailable for Wednesday's game but would return to the closer role on Friday. The Angels are off Thursday.


CF Torii Hunter (strained adductor muscle in right groin) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to July 8.

RF Vladimir Guerrero (strained muscle behind left knee) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to July 8. He is unlikely to return before early August.

RHP Kelvim Escobar (right shoulder soreness) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to June 6, and he was transferred to the 60-day DL on July 24. He is out indefinitely.

RHP Dustin Moseley (nerve irritation in right elbow) went on the 15-day disabled list April 18, and he was transferred to the 60-day disabled list June 6. He had a setback in mid-May during his rehab at extended spring training. He was cleared to start light throwing in late May but was shut down again because of pain traveling from his neck to his elbow.

RHP Scot Shields (left knee tendinitis) went on the 15-day disabled list May 26. He had season-ending surgery June 16 and was moved to the 60-day DL.
