Collin Cowgill (hand) served as a pinch-runner Monday against the Padres and scored the winning run.

Cowgill was scratched from Sunday's lineup after he felt pain in his top hand while swinging in batting practice. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to the lineup, but that the Angels were willing to use him as a pinch-runner indicates that it might not be long.

Billy Hamilton (shoulder, wrist) went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in his return to the lineup Monday.

Hamilton sat out Sunday after banging his shoulder and wrist on a slide into second base on Saturday, but one day of rest was enough. It's worth noting that he was moved from eighth to ninth in the order on Monday, which Reds manager Bryan Price is hopeful will allow him to take more advantage of his speed. Look him him to stick there, at least for the short-term.

Brian McCann (foot) blasted a three-run homer, drew two walks, and scored twice in Monday's blowout win over the Royals.

McCann left Sunday's game with cramping in his right foot and calf, but it was never a major concern. The 31-year-old backstop has driven in seven runs over his last four games and is now batting .235/.299/.404 with five home runs and 28 RBI on the year.

Angels optioned 1B/DH C.J. Cron to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Cron's playing time had been dwindling and he's hit just .204/.225/.276 for the season with an ugly 23/2 K/BB ratio. The Halos will make a corresponding move prior to Tuesday's game.
May 26 - 12:55 AM

Tyson Ross took a no-decision after allowing three runs (two earned) in six innings as the Padres lost 4-3 to the Angels on Monday.

Ross was fortunate to only allow the three runs as he gave up 10 hits in the outing along with a walk. The Angels also stole three bases off of him and catcher Derek Norris. Ross used seven strikeouts to limit runner advancement. The young right-hander has pitched well, but not at the level that led to an All-Star bid in 2014. He has a 3.84 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and a 69/30 K/BB ratio in 58 2/3 innings. Ross will face the Pirates at home in his next outing.
May 26 - 12:33 AM

Jered Weaver got a no-decision on Monday, holding the Padres to one run in 6 2/3 innings of work.

Weaver was working on a shutout, but allowed the tying run to get into scoring position in the seventh inning before he was pulled. Reliever Jose Alvarez allowed Weaver's runner to score plus two of his own, ruining Weaver's bid for a win. Weaver allowed six hits and a walk while striking out seven. He has really turned things around over his last four starts, lowering his ERA to 4.06 with a 1.15 WHIP, and a 35/10 K/BB ratio in 64 1/3 innings. Weaver will face the Tigers at home next weekend.

Craig Kimbrel didn't take the loss, but allowed the Angels to walk off winners in the ninth inning on Monday.

Kevin Quackenbush allowed the Angels to put runners on the corners with one out, prompting manager Bud Black to bring in Kimbrel to put out the fire. Kimbrel struck out Erick Aybar, then intentionally walked Mike Trout to load the bases for Albert Pujols. Kimbrel broke Pujols' bat, but the grounder snuck into left field for a walk-off single. Kimbrel wasn't charged with the run or the loss, but entered the appearance having allowed runs in seven of his previous 11 outings and he carries a miserable 5.63 ERA with a 17/5 K/BB ratio in 10 innings while going 11-for-12 in save chances.

Albert Pujols hit a broken-bat RBI single to help the Angels walk off winners in the bottom of the ninth against the Padres on Monday.

Padres closer Craig Kimbrel was trying to clean up Kevin Quackenbush's mess and walked Mike Trout to load the bases with two outs to face Pujols. Pujols broke his bat, but was strong enough to drive a grounder into left field for the walk-off hit. He finished 1-for-5 on the night. The veteran first baseman is batting a mediocre .228/.280/.420 with eight home runs and 17 RBI.
