Frandsen started at first base for the first time in the major leagues, becoming the fourth player the Angels have started at that position in 16 games since Kendry Morales went down for the season with a broken left leg. They are 12-4 since then, with Robb Quinlan, Michael Ryan and catcher Mike Napoli also helping fill the void there.
NOTES: Saunders has a 9.41 ERA in his 29 career losses, and a 1.97 ERA in his 53 victories. He was 4-1 over his previous six outings, including a pair of wins over Oakland's Dallas Braden that came after Braden pitched his perfect game. ... Braun is on track to become the first player in Brewers history to start in three consecutive All-Star games. He leads all NL outfielders in the fan balloting, after garnering the most outfield votes in each of the previous two years. ... RHP Dylan Covey, the Brewers' selection with the 14th overall pick in last week's draft, attended the game with his parents and two brothers. Covey, who played his high school ball in Pasadena, Calif., was in full Brewers uniform with his name and No. 7 on the back of his jersey while the team took batting practice.
