Mike Trout Hits First MLB Home Run In 9-3 Angels Win Over Orioles

Mike Trout hit his first major league home run, capping a 9-3 win for the Angels over the Orioles at Camden Yards, and a series win for the Halos. Tyler Chatwood allowed two runs over seven innings for the Angels, who have won 10 of their last 11 series.

Trout hit a three-run shot off relief pitcher Mark Worrell in the eighth inning, blowing open a close game to widen the Angels' lead to 6-2. Torii Hunter added a two-run shot off Worrell, and also had a double earlier in the game. After compiling eight runs and 17 hits combined in the first two games of the series, the Angels scored nine runs today on 13 hits and five walks.

Chatwood, who came into the game with more walks (56) than strikeouts (53) on the season, didn't walk a batter for the first time in his young, 19-start big league career. He allowed just two runs in seven innings, striking out five. The Angels open a three-game series in Cleveland Monday night.
