With three hits in Tuesday's 12-5 loss to the Angels, outfielder Melky Cabrera set a new San Francisco-era record for the fewest plate appearances to 100 hits in a season. Getting to the 100 hit plateau in just 291 plate appearances, Cabrera broke the record Willie Mays set in 1958, when Mays recorded 100 hits in 295 plate appearances. After taking a ball off the glove hand in Monday's game, pitcher Matt Cain is doing "just fine," manager Bruce Bochy said on Tuesday. The ball hit the righty on his left wrist, and Bochy said he doesn't feel it will affect him. Angels: Williams feeling better
While manager Mike Scioscia isn't sure if right-hander Jerome Williams will have to go on the disabled list, he is certain about one thing: "He's feeling better." Scioscia visited Williams late Monday night at UC Irvine Medical Center, where he was being treated following a shortness of breath he experienced shortly after coming out of Monday's start against the Giants. Williams, who has a history with asthma, was released from the hospital on Tuesday afternoon after undergoing "a variety of tests," but wasn't at Angel Stadium for the game against the Giants. He'll return to UCI on Wednesday for more testing, the team announced. With his fifth plate appearance on Tuesday night, Mike Trout now qualifies for the batting title. Trout went 4-for-4 with a walk in the 12-5 win over the Giants and is now hitting .337, trailing only Paul Konerko of the White Sox (.357) for the American League lead.
Vogelsong has worked at least six innings in each of his 12 starts and has gone seven innings or more nine times this season.
