PHOENIX (AP) — Mike Trout and Josh Hamilton homered in the same game for the first time this spring and combined for four of the Los Angeles Angels’ 14 hits in a 9-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.
Kole Calhoun led off the game with a single and Trout followed with his fifth homer this spring, a line drive to left-center. Trout added a single in the third and is batting .426 with 16 RBIs.
Hamilton, playing his fifth Cactus League game after missing several weeks with a strained calf, hit a towering drive down the right field line off starter Kyle Lohse in the fifth. Hamilton had two hits in five at-bats.
Chad Tracy put the Angels ahead with a three-run shot in the seventh.
Carlos Gomez hit a leadoff homer for the Brewers and added a single. Elian Herrera had two hits, including a two-run triple over Trout’s head in center field.
