Trout has come through big in his last three games, going 8 for 13 with two home runs, six runs scored, six RBI and two stolen bases. He's hitting .302/.378/.582 in 217 plate appearances this year.
Jose Valverde perfect in earning fifth save
Valverde has been a stabilizing force at the back end of the bullpen since joining the team in late April.
Rick Porcello struggles against Twins
Porcello had been on a roll in his last four starts, but the poor outing Thursday raised his ERA to 6.28. It was also the first time in five starts that he struck out fewer than five batters. He next faces the Pirates at home Tuesday.
Scott Diamond falls out short of quality start
Diamond hasn't had a quality start in any of his last three games. His next chance is against the Brewers in Milwaukee Tuesday.
Ervin Santana allows four home runs in loss
Home runs were a problem for Santana with the Angels last season, when he allowed 39 in 30 starts. He had allowed six homers in eight starts heading into Thursday. The poor performance gives Santana a 3.14 ERA going into a matchup against the Cardinals Tuesday.
Ernesto Frieri removed from save opportunity
It was Frieri's third-straight appearance allowing at least one earned run, though he eraned saves in each of his previous two games.
Robert Coello earns first career save
Coello has not allowed an earned run in 7 1/3 innings this season.
Joe Blanton earns first win
Blanton's rotation spot will be in jeopardy when Tommy Hanson returns, but Thursday's start was a good way to staunch the bleeding after allowing 23 hits in nine innings over his previous two starts. He'll face the Dodgers Tuesday with a 6.19 ERA.
