He ripped the two-run shot off starter Freddy Garcia in the seventh inning and finished 1 for 2 with two RBI, two runs scored and two walks. Five of Trumbo's last seven hits have been home runs and he is batting .292 (7 for 24) with five long balls and eight RBI over his last six games.

(5/2/13) Angels slugger Mark Trumbo homered for the third straight game and the the fourth time in six games Wednesday against the Athletics. Trumbo's career slash line in May is .324/.379/.608/.987.
After batting .188 in his first four games, Trumbo is batting .320 with six home runs, seven doubles and 16 RBI in his last 23 games.
"Trum is definitely finding his comfort level in the box," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said, per The Associated Press.
|Mark Trumbo sticking to cleanup rotation|
|by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com|
(4/30/13) Angels outfielder Mark Trumbo went 3 for 8 with a double and a homer during Los Angeles' 10-8 loss at Oakland in 19 innings Monday night. Trumbo's solo shot in the second inning marked his second in the past four games, but the slugger also whiffed twice to give him at least one strikeout in each of the past 15 outings.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia told MLB.com on Monday that he will keep Trumbo in a platoon at the cleanup spot after contemplating putting him in the position more frequently. Trumbo is currently rotating with outfielder Josh Hamilton in the four-hole, with Trumbo earning the nod against left-handers and Hamilton facing righties.

|For a while in 2012, Mark Trumbo made the Angels' offseason decision to pay Albert Pujols $240 million look downright silly. The displaced first baseman was the one putting up All-Star numbers, forcing the Angels to carve out a spot in the outfield for him by hitting .311 with 26 homers and a .995 OPS in his first 82 games. But then came his final 62 games, when he hit .213 with six homers and a .561 OPS. So what happened? Well, the easiest explanation is that Trumbo developed back spasms related to a rib injury on July 29 -- right about the time his season-ending slump began. Of course, that's also the oversimplified explanation. Most likely, Trumbo's miserable second half was also the product of a long overdue regression to the mean. The Angels signed Pujols because they identified Trumbo as an all-or-nothing slugger whose streakiness was offset by all the home runs he would hit. It just so happened the streakiness was more extreme than anyone would have imagined. True, we obviously don't know what would have happened if not for the back issues, but considering Trumbo posted a 153-to-36 strikeout-to-walk ratio, you have to believe a .260ish batting average is on the high end of what he's able to sustain over a full season. If his 30-plus home runs are worth it to you, feel free to target him with a middle-round pick. (Updated 12/3/12)|
