    Angels' Mike Trout goes deep for fifth time in six games on Saturday

    Angels center fielder Mike Trout went 1 for 4 with his 39th homer in a 5-2 victory over the Twins. Trout now has three round-trippers over his last 11 at-bats, and has at least one RBI in each of the first three games of the key four-game set against the Twins. The superstar center fielder's gopher ball added to the career-high figure in that category that he established in 2015, and his .660 slugging percentage also represents a career-best.

    Mike Trout powers Angels to victory with two homers on Thursday

    Angels outfielder Mike Trout delivered a massive game Thursday against the Twins, going 2 for 3 with a grand slam, a solo homer, three walks and three runs scored. With 38 long balls on the year now, Trout's set a new career high, and he bounced back impressively after getting struck out three times in Wednesday's loss to the Mariners. The star center fielder's counting stats haven't quite lived up to expectations, though -- he's fifth in the American League with 93 runs, but his 83 RBI are outside the league's top 10 and his speed contributions have continued shrinking. Of course, it's hard to complain about a guy who's going to hit 40 homers while contributing strong batting average and OBP.
