ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Mike Trout tied the Angels’ record for career home runs in the first inning and scored the winning run in the 11th as Los Angeles beat the Houston Astros 6-5. Trout drove a sinker from Lance McCullers Jr. over the wall in center for a two-run shot in the first inning for No. 299 of his 10-year career, matching Tim Salmon for the franchise mark. The reigning AL MVP is tied for the major league lead with 14 homers. He began the bottom half of the 11th as the automatic runner at second base and scored on Shohei Ohtani’s one-out single to right off Brooks Raley.
