TROUT HITS 489 FT HOME RUN IN 8-6 LOSS TO ROYALS

Omar Infante said “There was a lot of wind, I just wanted to make contact, do something.” but he did more than make contact with the bases loaded, KC already up 3-2. Infante’s first career GRAND SLAM in 1,286 games gave the Royals a 7-2 lead and by the end of the inning they had tacked on one more off an RBI single to make the lead 8-2. However Jason Vargas gave up 4 runs in the 5th inning shrinking the lead to 2-1 so Kansas City called on their bullpen which pitched 5 scoreless innings to secure an 8-6 win. Michael Mariot got the win, the first of his career pitching 1 1/3 innings and striking out one “We just knew that with Vargas going four innings, we needed to piece it together,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “Mariot did a phenomenal job.” Greg Holland added his 23rd save in the year by pitching a perfect 9th, striking out all 3 batters. CJ Cron hit two homers for the Angels and Mike Trout hit a crazy shot that cleared the fence, the seats, and the walkway before landing in a fountain. “I squared it up. I definitely barreled it,” Trout said. “I was trying to put a good swing on it and got a pitch I could hit. I’m always looking fastball and reacted. I got a heater.”

“We had a lot of great opportunities. We could have easily put our heads down when it was 8-2, but we fought back,” Trout said. “We just fell short.”
