All Mike Trout does is make history. Last night, Trout became the youngest player ever to hit 25 home runs and steal 40 bases in a season and his RBI singled tied the game before Torii Hunter‘s walk off sac fly as the Angels won 6-5 against the Red Sox.
The Angels got the scoring started when Trout led off the game with that homer. Hunter walked, Albert Pujols in his return to the lineup singled and Mark Trumbo brought in Hunter with a sac fly. The Red Sox got one of the runs back when Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit his 22nd homer of the year.
The Red Sox got the lead in the fourth. Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury singled and Ryan Lavarnway walked. James Loney and Saltalamacchia singled to drive in runs and Ryan Kalish grounded into a double play which brought another run in. They added a run in the sixth when Ellsbury singled, stole second and went to third on Chris Iannetta‘s error. Lavarnway brought him home with a sac fly.
The Angels came back in the sixth when Pujols hit his 26th homer of the year. Trumbo walked and Howard Kendrick brought him in with a double. Then they won it in the ninth. Erick Aybar was hit by a pitch and stole second. Alberto Callaspo walked. Trout’s single tied it and Hunter’s sac fly won it.
