Trout Takes Home Run Trip

Hits: 0

On Friday night, former MVP, Mike Trout hit his 8th home run in 10 games, as the Angels beat the Mariners 8-7 in Los Angeles.

While LA has secured their 7th straight losing season already, the win breaks a 4 game skid for the Halos. Michael Lorenzo provided 5 innings, giving up 3 earned runs for the home team. It’s beginning to become nail biting time for the Mariners, as they have 19 games left in the regular season to secure a Wild Card birth.

Seattle will have three more opportunities in this series before they face the A’s in Oakland. With a light schedule on paper, the Mariners should be favorites to grab a spot in the postseason.
