Still wary of Trout, Astros seek sweep of Angels

Houston Astros manager AJ Hinch wanted no part of lauding the success his pitchers have enjoyed this series against Los Angeles Angels superstar center fielder Mike Trout, particularly in high-leverage situations.

Before recording an RBI single off Astros reliever Joe Smith with one out in the seventh inning Saturday, Trout was 0-for-7 on the weekend. He'd stranded teammates in scoring position in the two plate appearances prior to his run-scoring hit and did so twice in the series opener Friday.

Trout represented the tying run when he came to the plate with the bases loaded in the fifth inning Saturday, only to lift a fly ball that Astros center fielder George Springer corralled for the final out. He flew out to Springer again with David Fletcher on first base in the ninth and has left five batters in scoring position this series.
