Mike Trout scored on Saunders’ first wild pitch of the season, leading the Angels to a 1-0 victory over the Mariners on Wednesday night.
Mike Trout hit for the cycle and drove in five runs, Josh Hamilton celebrated his 32nd birthday with a homer and a triple his first two times up, and Howie Kendrick also went deep in the Los Angeles Angels’ 12-0 rout of the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.
Simply put, Mike Trout was the best player in the game in 2012.
2010 AL Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez finished his season Monday night with an ineffective outing in Seattle’s 8-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. He allowed a season-high 12 hits and seven runs over 5 1-3 innings, falling to 0-4 with a 6.62 ERA after Aug. 27.
