NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia isn’t concerned about first baseman Albert Pujols, who appeared to injure himself as he rounded first base on an eighth-inning ground-rule double in Friday night’s 6-5 loss to the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

“He’s OK,” Scioscia said. “He had fouled a ball off his foot where he touched the bag and felt a little jolt or something, but he should be OK.”

Scioscia said he expected to have Pujols in the lineup Saturday.
  • Brad Mills was optioned to Triple-A, taking him out of the mix to make Tuesday’s start in Detroit.
  • Twenty-year-old rookie phenom Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a pair of stolen bases in his MLB debut at Yankee Stadium -- the eighth time he has stolen multiple bases in a game this season. Trout has stolen 19 straight bases without being caught.
  • Mark Trumbo has homered in five straight games against the Yankees, matching the longest such streak against them, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Fifteen of the 26-year-old left fielder’s team-high 23 homers have tied the score or given the Angels the lead.
  • The Angels fell to 5-6 in their last 11 games, and have lost three straight on the road, their longest road losing skid since May 19-21. They have dropped five of their last seven games away from Angel Stadium.
