Albert Pujols blasted his 25th home run of the season on Sunday as the Angels routed the Rangers 12-6 in Arlington.

Pujols finished the night 2-for-5. He had an RBI single as part of a three-run uprising in the first inning, then tagged Colby Lewis for a solo shot in the fourth to put the Halos up 8-1. He's having a terrific first half, slashing .265/.337/.557 with 25 bombs and 53 RBI.
Jul 5 - 10:20 PM

Kole Calhoun had a nice day at the dish in Sunday's victory over the Rangers, going 2-for-5 with a homer and four RBI.

Calhoun also scored a pair of runs in the ballgame. His three-run blast off Anthony Ranaudo in the fifth inning increased the Angels lead to 12-1. With the two-hit attack, he's now hitting .266/.320/.403 on the season with nine long balls and 46 RBI.
Jul 5 - 10:20 PM

C.J. Wilson cruised to an easy victory over the Rangers on Sunday, allowing three runs on six hits in his six frames.

Wilson walked two and punched out four in the contest. The Angels provided 12 early runs of support for the left-hander, and all he had to do was throw strikes and keep the Rangers from mounting any major rallies. He's enjoying a nice first half, compiling a 3.82 ERA and 93/34 K/BB ratio in 108 1/3 innings. He'll make his final start of the first half on Saturday against the Mariners in Seattle.
Jul 5 - 10:19 PM

Rougned Odor continue his hot-hitting in Sunday's loss to the Angels, going 1-for-4 with a homer and three RBI.

All of his damage came long after the outcome of the game had been decided. His two-run blast off Trevor Gott in the seventh inning closed the deficit to 12-5, and he added a sacrifice fly in the final frame. Since returning from Triple-A, he's hitting a blistering .365 (23-for-63) with three homers, 13 RBI and four stolen bases in 18 games.
Jul 5 - 10:19 PM

Colby Lewis was absolutely annihilated in Sunday's loss to the Angels, surrendering 10 runs on 12 hits over his four-plus innings of work.

The veteran right-hander walked a pair and struck out one on the night. The Angels broke the game open with a three-run uprising in the first inning, and tacked in on every inning that Lewis worked, including the fifth. After a strong start to the season, he now owns a troublesome 4.83 ERA and 4.52 xFIP through 104 1/3 innings. He'll look to finish the first half on a high note when he does battle against the Padres on Saturday.
Jul 5 - 10:18 PM

Ryan Vogelsong and Bruce Bochy were ejected from Sunday night's game against the Nationals for arguing balls and strikes with home plate umpire Phil Cuzzi.

The Giants hitters had taken issue with Cuzzi's strike zone, as five hitters were rang up on called third strikes in the first five innings, while Vogelsong obviously felt he was getting squeezed. Before departing, the right-hander allowed one run on three hits and issued three walks over four-plus innings.
Jul 5 - 9:48 PM

Robinson Cano expects to be in the Mariners lineup on Monday after getting hit by a pitch on his ankle in Sunday's game.

There's still a chance that his ankle could swell on the trip back to Seattle, or the Mariners could give him a day to rest as a precaution, but expect to see him in the M's lineup for Monday's series opener against the Tigers.
Jul 5 - 8:28 PM

Bryce Harper was the leading vote getter in the entire National League for the All-Star game, garnering 13,864,950 ballots.

It will be the third time in his first four years in the big leagues that he has made the National League squad. He'll be joined by Paul Goldschmidt, Dee Gordon, Todd Frazier, Jhonny Peralta, Buster Posey, Giancarlo Stanton and Matt Holliday in the starting lineup for the senior circuit. Stanton is on the disabled list and will not be able to appear in the game, and Holliday's status is up in the air.
