Trout homers again on birthday, but Angels fall to Rangers

Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Mike Trout hit another homer on his birthday for the Los Angels Angels, but they didn’t win as he turned 29. Robinson Chirinos drove in two runs without a hit for the Texas Rangers in a 4-3 win to snap a three-game losing streak. Chirinos had a sacrifice fly in the second inning. He then walked with the bases loaded in the fourth, when the Rangers scored three unearned runs. Trout has homered five times in seven big league games played on his birthday. Jordan Lyles got his first win for Texas, while losing pitcher Griffin Channing walked six batters in 3 2-3 innings.
