• Trout hits for cycle as Angels drub Mariners

    Summary of 8 articles · Updated May 22, 2013
    • Trout is the first hitter this season to hit for the cycle. Trout hit a home run in the eighth inning to cap a historic night for himself, but it was his second at-bat against the Seattle Mariners which resulted with an infield single that got Trout's cycle started in the third inning. In addition to his first career cycle, Trout had five RBIs while Howie Kendrick, Hamilton and Pujols each drove in a pair of runs giving the Angels their third straight victory, tying their longest winning streak of the season. When the Angels added Josh Hamilton to a lineup already featuring Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, everyone envisioned an offensive explosion. After taking a called third strike his first time up, Trout reached on an infield single in the third inning, hit an RBI triple in the fourth and added a three-run double in the sixth before homering in the eighth on a 2-0 pitch from Lucas Luetge . That means that Harper, who has been slumping this month but was still hitting .288/.383/.598 on the season coming into the game and has been far and away the Nationals’ best hitter since last August, bunted on his own.
