By scoring two runs in the Angels' 5-4 win over the Mariners on Tuesday, Mike Trout tied the Angels' single-season record with 124, set by Vladimir Guerrero in 2004.
For the second time in four days, Maicer Izturis started in place of Howie Kendrick at second base with a right-handed starter on the mound. Manager Mike Scioscia said the decision was made simply because lefties have hit Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez better than righties this year.
On Saturday, Angels owner Arte Moreno gave Scioscia a public endorsement, telling MLB.com that he'd "100 percent" return next season. On Tuesday, Scioscia downplayed the significance of that within the clubhouse, saying: "I think these guys are focused on the task at hand and what we need to do. I don't think anything that was going on was a discussion to these guys, so now that it's resolved I don't think it's really a relief [for the players]."
