Angels slugger Mark Trumbo hit his fourth walk off home run on Sunday. Here are some facts about where he stands in franchise lore.

Trumbo's fourth ties him for third place on the franchise walk off home run leader board. Tim Salmon had six, Brian Downing had five and Trumbo joins Jim Fregosi and Leroy Stanton with four. Don Baylor, Doug DeCinces,Troy Glaus, and Scott Spiezio all had three walk off home runs as Angels.

The four most recent Angels walk off home runs have been hit by Mark Trumbo. He was previously the only Angel to ever hit three walk offs with no teammate chronologically interceding and now his streak is at four.

This was his first extra inning walk off home run and his third solo homer. His come from behind two-run blast in August of 2011 against the Rangers came against pitcher Mike Adams. Trumbo drove in Torii Hunter, his opponent on Sunday.

Sunday's walk off home run was the 101st in franchise history. It was the 18th walk off home run hit by an Angel in the month of April and the seventh ever hit against the Tigers. If you had a flashback to 1986, the Angels hit walk off home runs against the Tigers in consecutive games of August of that season - a come from behind walk off grand slam by Dick Schofield off of Willie Hernandez on August 29 and a come from behind two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth by DeCinces on the 30th. The Angels completed a three-game sweep of Detroit that weekend with a win on Sunday.

Of 101 Walk Off Home Runs hit by Angels batters, Trumbo's was only the 24th hit off of a Lefthanded pitcher. It was the 94th ever hit at the stadium (Angel Stadium/Edison Field/Anaheim Stadium) and was the 53rd hit in extra innings.

May 3 will be the 52nd anniversary of the first ever walk off home run in Angels history. Tim Salmon hit a walk off on April 4, 1997, the fourth game of the season that year, the earliest walk of home run in Angels history.
