AT THE PLATE:
ON THE MOUND:
LOW-KEY CELEBRATION: There was no on-field ceremony and virtually no fanfare or delay after Pujols hit his 500th home run, which is how the slugger wanted it. "I saw all these guys coming out of the dugout, and it was hard," Pujols said. "I told them we have a game to win, and you don't want to disrespect the other club."
EXTRA BASES: The Angels improved to 10-10 overall and 3-2 on a grueling trip to Detroit, Washington and New York. They were 8-12 through 20 games last season.
UP NEXT: Right-hander
