Mike Trout Hits First Big League Homer as Tyler Chatwood and Angels Cruise in Baltimore

Upstream?

Final Score in Baltimore: Angels 9, Orioles 3

Pre1_medium

The 2012 Angels got an early start of dominating the American league as 21-year-old Tyler Chatwood pitched 7 innings of 6-hit 2 ER ball and 19-year-old Mike Trout put a 1-run game out of reach late with a 3-run HR, the first of his major league career.

The man who drafted both of those players was fired at the end of the 2010 season by the man who signed or traded for ten players over the age of 30 currently on the team's 25-man roster.

Alberto Callaspo scored three times, Howie Kendrick scored twice and had three hits including a bunt single in the 8th with a 3-2 lead that set up the Trout HR. Mark Trumbo had an early sac fly and a single late in the game. He overslid 2B and was tagged out. With a 9-2 lead at the time it was kind funny. Not as funny as the Angels television broadcast focusing on the fan who caught Trout's HR as if they are so bored with the team itself that there are more exciting things to cover but, well, yeah, actually, exactly that.

Oh well, Angels take the series 2 games to 1 from the Bethesda Birds and now move on to Cleveland for three games, Trout in tow, trade deadline approaching and Bobby Abreu's $9 million option about to vest.
