News: It took two weeks, but Angels second baseman Howie Kendrick has finally cooled off at the plate.

Kendrick is 2 for 12 in his last four games, which might not qualify as struggling until one considers he was 22 for 44 for a .500 average with 11 runs scored and 13 RBI in his previous 10 games. Despite his recent mini-slide, he still owns a stat line of .291/.345/.394.

The veteran has scored 84 runs on the season, two off his career-high, giving him an outside shot at 100.

Still, it was his first home run with his new team after starting his Dodger career 4 of 19 in limited action. Barney has hit .235/.287/.341 with three home runs and 21 RBI in 226 at-bats.
