Angels Vs. Indians Starting Lineup: Mike Trout to Lead Off

If the Los Angeles Angels are going to get back into the race to win the American League West, they'll need Mike Trout to continue his tremendous season.

He'll get the start at center field for Monday's contest against the Cleveland Indians and lead off, hoping to spark the Angels' lineup and get his team going.

The rest of the lineup for the series opener vs. the Indians is as follows:

1. Mike Trout, CF

2. Torii Hunter, RF

3. Albert Pujols, 1B

4. Kendrys Morales, DH

5. Mark Trumbo, LF

6. Alberto Callaspo, 3B

7. Howie Kendrick, 2B

8. Erick Aybar, , SS

9. Chris Iannetta, C

Left-hander C. J. Wilson will take the mound and look to right the ship for the Angels, who find themselves eight games out of first place behind the Texas Rangers. The Halos' big three of Trout, Trumbo, and Pujols will need to produce in this series in order to turn things around.
