Trout's Big Game Boosts Angels Over Rangers

Posted:
MILLVILLE - Mike Trout went 4-4 with a grand slam and a solo home run, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 13-7 victory over the Texas Rangers.
Trout became the fastest player in Angeles history to reach 30 home runs in a season, doing it in his 97th games. Troy Glaus previously set the mark in 2000 at 100 games.
The highlight of the game came in the sixth inning. With the bases loaded, Trout nailed Spencer Patton's fastball right into the basket of a fan made "Trout Net" sign in right field for a grand slam.
The two long balls gave Trout sole possession of the league lead in home runs at 31, which is two more than teammate Albert Pujols. The grand slam was the third of Trout's career.
With the win, the Angles now have a one-game lead over the Houston Astros in the American League West division.
Trout also finished the game with five runs batted in and three runs scored.
