Scoring on the singles with Luis Rengifo’s loaded bases in the sixth to make it 3-0, Trout joined Willy Mays and Alex Rodriguez as the only players to have 1,000 runs, 300 home runs and 200 stolen bases in the 30 years old.
Trout is also the second player in Angels history to score 1,000 points, after Garrett Anderson (1,024).
Rengifo also gave the Angels the lead with a solo homer in the fifth, beating Adam Kolarek (0-1).
The victory was brought to the record of Michael Lorenzen (5-2). He allowed only three hits and two walks in addition to striking out four batters in six innings of work. Raisel Iglesias picked up a ninth save.
