Mike Trout comes up limping after sliding into second
Mike Trout was limping after sliding into second base following a double in the Los Angeles Angels’ game against the Oakland A’s on Thursday.
Trout batted with a runner on first and two outs in the top of the eighth. He smoked a line drive to center and decided to stretch for a double. He slid into the base and beat the tag, but he paid the price. Trout came up walking gingerly — possibly because he had aggravated a previously irritated area.

A trainer came out to look at Trout, but he remained in the game.
Trout went 1-for-3 with a walk. The Angels were shutout 4-0 and only had three hits in the game. Once again it looks like an offense of Trout and everyone else for the Angels.
