Angels Cruise To 9-3 Win Over Orioles
BALTIMORE (AP) — Tyler Chatwood allowed two runs in seven innings, Mike Trout and Torii Hunter homered in a five-run eighth, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 9-3 Sunday.
The Angels were protecting a 3-2 lead in the eighth before turning the game into a rout against reliever Mark Worrell. After Trout hit his first major league homer, a three-run drive, Hunter followed a walk to Maicer Izturis with a shot into the left-field seats.
The 19-year-old Trout was batting .162 with two RBIs before connecting on a 3-1 pitch. Trout, who made his debut on July 8, is the youngest player in the majors.
Chatwood (6-6) gave up six hits, struck out four and walked none in lowering his ERA on the road to 3.21.
