Trout powers Angels past Yankees 4-1
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Mike Trout and C.J. Cron homered, Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun added run-scoring doubles, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the New York Yankees 4-1 Monday night for their fifth victory in seven games.
Trout hit his 20th homer of the season in the third inning against CC Sabathia (3-8). The reigning AL MVP also saved a couple of runs with two sprinting catches in center field on balls hit over his head by Chris Young.
C.J. Wilson (6-6) persevered through six eventful innings for his third victory in four starts as the Angels (40-37) moved three games above .500 for the first time since June 2.
Alex Rodriguez drove in a run and Brett Gardner had three hits for the Yankees, who have lost six of nine.
