ANAHEIM -- The Angels are tied with the Oakland A's for the most different lineups used this season, 22 in 24 games, and manager Mike Scioscia is trying another look Wednesday night: using his co-home run leader, Vernon Wells, in the No. 2 hole.

The top two hitters Wednesday, Erick Aybar and Wells, have .250 and .247 on-base percentages respectively, having walked a combined six times.

"We're kind of going caveman in this lineup, just going big, with some guys who can swing the bat," Scioscia said.

Here are the rest of the lineups:
