The Angels removed Trout from the game in the top of the sixth. Trout collected a single and a double in his first two at-bats, but flied out to center field in the bottom of the fifth during his third at-bat. Kole Calhoun replaced Trout in the lineup, moving Collin Cowgill from right field to center field.
Trout has been the best player on a disappointing Angels team, entering Sunday hitting .330/.429/.571 with 21 homers and 78 RBI in 557 plate appearances. He has also contributed with his defense and baserunning; Fangraphs credits Trout with 8.3 WAR, the highest WAR in the majors.
The outfielder's first inning single marked the 40th straight game that Trout has reached base safely. Two players have had streaks longer than 40 games this season: Michael Cuddyer (46) and Miguel Cabrera (44), according to ESPN Stats & Info.
