    There is never a June gloom for Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout.
    Trout drove in two runs Youth Breeland Speaks Jersey , Kole Calhoun and Ian Kinsler added solo homers and the Angels held on for a 5-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

    Trout continued his torrid hitting in June by slapping a sharp first-pitch single to left-center with the bases loaded in the fifth inning, and a throwing error by Jarrod Dyson allowing Kinsler to score as the Angels took a 4-2 lead.

    ”We have to be more than Mike, but believe me, that’s a situation we love to have him swing the bat,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.

    Trout went 1 for 1 with two walks, improving to .448 (26 for 58) this month. His career average of .358 in June is the best by an active player in any month with at least 400 plate appearances, and Trout has hit safely in eight straight games.

    ”This is not an easy game and this guy makes it look easier and easier every year, so it’s a special talent that we’re not going to see too many times, so enjoy it now,” Calhoun said.

    Asked if he had an explanation for Trout’s tendency to thrive in June, Calhoun joked, ”It must be his favorite month.”

    Matt Koch (5-4) hit two batters to help load the bases for Trout, who has 10 walks in his last five games. Koch allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings to end his streak of four straight starts without a loss.

    ”It just slipped away from him. To stop this team, you got to limit the baserunners before Mike Trout, and he didn’t do that,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said.

    Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer in the ninth, but Blake Parker got Jake Lamb to line out to left for the third out and end a three-game losing streak.

    Cam Bedrosian (4-1) got the win as the struggling Angels bullpen delivered, with Parker getting his eighth save despite giving up Goldschmidt’s 16th home run.

    Angels right-hander Felix Pena gave up one run, two hits and three walks in four innings in his first major league start, while striking out six.

    Kinsler hit his 48th career leadoff homer, fourth all-time. Calhoun clubbed his second home run of the season in the sixth inning.

    COMEBACK CALHOUN

    Buoyed by his first homer since opening day Authentic Christian Kirk Jersey , Calhoun went 2 for 3. He is 3 for 7 in two games since returning from the disabled list because of a strained right oblique muscle. Calhoun had been hitting .145 prior to the injury.

    TRAINER’S ROOM

    Diamondbacks: RHP Archie Bradley has been hindered because of a cracked fingernail on his right index finger, limiting his ability to throw curveballs. Bradley does not expect the nail will heal this season after cracking it during spring training.

    Angels: CF Chris Young left the game after the seventh inning because of a hamstring injury.

    ROSTER MOVES

    The Angels acquired RHP Deck McGuire from Texas in exchange for cash considerations and a player to be named later, designating C Juan Graterol for assignment in a corresponding move.

    McGuire appeared in four games for Toronto this season, allowing six earned runs in 8 1/3 innings. He has a 4.09 ERA in 10 career appearances.

    UP NEXT

    Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley (7-5, 4.77 ERA) will start at Pittsburgh on Thursday. Godley has won three of his last four starts.

    Angels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (6-4, 2.81) will start against Toronto on Thursday. Skaggs is 3-0 with a 0.45 ERA in June, having allowed one run in 20 innings.





    NEW YORK — Hours before the Atlanta Braves took the field at Yankee Stadium, as an air conditioning vent blew cold air inside a sweltering third base dugout, manager Brian Snitker admitted he did not think the youth would come together so quickly this season.

    Snitker thought the Braves would do well but not necessarily possess the best record in the National League.

    About 6 1/2 hours later, the Braves wrapped up another win due to some youthful contributions and on Tuesday they can become the first team in the National League to reach 50 victories when they continue a three-game series with the New York Yankees.

    .tpClipInfo > * { display: none !important; } .tpPlayer { display: none !important; } .tpReleaseList > * { display: none !important; } .tpReleaseModel > * { display: none !important; } .tpNavigation > * { display: none !important; } .tpSearch > * { display: none !important; } .tpCategoryModel > * { display: none !important; } .tpHeader > * { display: none !important; } .tpCategoryList > * { display: none !important; }
    The Braves are on a four-game winning streak and 31-19 against opponents with winning records after Ronald Acuna Jr. hit a two-run homer in the 11th inning off David Robertson to give Atlanta a 5-3 victory.

    “We’re ahead of where we thought we’d be,” Snitker said before the Braves upped the NL’s best record to 49-34. “Going into the season, I don’t think we expected to be sitting here on July 2 in first place.

    “We all felt we were going to do really good. In all honesty with where we were with our club and are, we’ve kind of surpassed what everybody thought the first of March where we’d be. We’re a probably a better team than what we thought we were.”

    Among the youthful players is Acuna, who at 20 years, 196 days is the youngest Atlanta rookie to hit a game-winning homer in extra innings since Andruw Jones (20 years, three days) did it April 26, 1997, against the San Diego Padres.

    Acuna is batting .274 with seven homers and 18 RBIs in 33 games. He also owns six RBIs in extra innings, second most behind 21-year-old Ozzie Albies. The Braves also are 9-3 when he drives in a run.

    “I’m never really nervous in those situations, my adrenaline kind of helps out,” Acuna said through an interpreter before adding he could never remember feeling nervous on the field.”

    The Yankees (54-28) are 4-6 in their last 10 games after going 0-for-12 with runners in scoring position and striking out 12 times.

    “We want to put them out there more often than not Authentic Mason Cole Jersey ,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “More often than not we’ll come through in those situations.”

    Aaron Judge hit his 23rd homer and walked twice but also couldn’t complete the leaping catch on Acuna’s homer.

    “I felt it hit my glove,” Judge said. “It didn’t go in. They got two runs. It was a tough play.”

    Judge and the Yankees have only lost a series three times since April 19 and are 45-19 in their last 64 games. They will attempt to do so after extensive use of their bullpen trying to win Monday’s game.

    Aroldis Chapman, David Robertson, Dellin Betances, Chad Green and Jonathan Holder combined for seven innings and threw 114 pitches.

    “Obviously we went through a lot of guys tonight, threw a lot of pitches,” Boone said. “It’ll be a little bit of a challenge tomorrow, but we’ll work through it.”

    Tuesday’s pitching matchup will feature young pitchers experiencing differing degrees of success of late as Sean Newcomb starts for Atlanta against Domingo German.

    After going 4-9 in 18 starts last season, he is 8-2 with a 2.71 ERA in 16 starts in his second campaign.

    Newcomb is coming off two straight no-decisions in home starts against the Baltimore Orioles and Cincinnati Reds. He has allowed three runs or less in all but two starts and allowed one run or less in eight outings, including six scoreless starts.

    “He’s a lot more competitive than I was ever led to believe,” said Snitker while noting how Newcomb’s changeup has developed into an effective pitch. “I didn’t know him a lot. I hadn’t seen him a lot in the minor leagues and once he came here, he’s a quiet guy, he doesn’t show a lot of emotion on the mound but he’s very competitive.”

    German will make his 10th start and it might be viewed as an audition to stay in the rotation until Masahiro Tanaka returns from a hamstring injury. German will pitch one day before Tanaka makes a rehab start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    German is 2-3 with a 5.88 ERA in nine starts and has shown some flashes but also struggled. He followed up a three-start stretch where he fanned 28 in 19 innings against the New York Mets, Tampa Bay Rays, and Seattle Mariners by struggling immensely in a 7-6 loss at Tampa Bay on June 24.

    In his last start, German tied a career worst by allowing six runs on a career-worst nine hits in three-plus innings. He threw 64 pitches to 19 hitters and was pushed back, though he pitched a scoreless relief inning Wednesday at Philadelphia.

    German’s only previous start against a National League team occurred June 9, when he allowed three runs on five hits in six innings in a 4-3 win at the Mets.
