Worth noting

• Ryan Madson is still throwing off flat ground, and manager Mike Scioscia said Wednesday that he expects the reliever to throw off a mound next week. "He's making a lot of progress," Scioscia said.

• Backup catcher Hank Conger nearly hit Weaver in the head with a warm-up throw to second base before the second inning on Wednesday. "One throw down kind of came at me a little bit. I wasn't expecting it," said Weaver. "I made sure in that third inning to get off the mound a little quicker."

• The Angels had seven extra-base hits in their victory over Team Italy. Four players doubled, and two -- J.B. Shuck and Randal Grichuk -- tripled. Scott Cousins hit a homer in the win.
