Trout, Bourjos in Angels' lineup together
ARLINGTON -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia went with yet another different look for the Saturday afternoon game against the Rangers -- a quick turnaround after a Friday night contest that included a two-hour rain delay.

Mike Trout and Peter Bourjos, who had started only two of the previous 12 games, were in the same outfield for only the second time since Trout's April 28 callup, with left fielder Vernon Wells getting the day off.

Albert Pujols, batting .192 after an 0-for-4 night, was at designated hitter for the second time this season. Mark Trumbo took his place at first base.

"It wasn't planned," Scioscia said of making Pujols the DH, "but I think coming into today, the guys we were going to play, it worked out where we could get him a DH day, let him just take a little day off from being out there on the field."

Everyday DH Kendrys Morales was unavailable for a second straight game due to a sore left Achilles tendon -- though he probably wouldn't have started against lefty Matt Harrison anyway. Scioscia said Morales feels "a lot better." He may be available to pinch-hit Saturday and could start Sunday, against righty Neftali Feliz.
