Smoak hitting cleanup, Ackley fifth

Note: The Angels’ lineup has been amended. Mike Trout is in left, Peter Bourjos in center, not the other way around as originally posted.

Michael Morse is out of the lineup. Justin Smoak moves into the cleanup spot for the first time all season after hitting fifth or sixth previously. Smoak had his first homer of the season yesterday. Carlos Peguero will be in right field, his first start since getting called up Wednesday when Franklin Gutierrez went on the DL.

Dustin Ackley, meanwhile, is hitting fifth, the highest he’s hit this year. Ackley has started 13 games hitting eighth, six times in the seven hole, and once at sixth. Ackley hit .409 (9-for-22) on the road trip.

Kelly Shoppach gets the start at catcher for the 11th time this year — just two fewer starts than Jesus Montero. =
