Angels outfielder Mike Trout is en fuego. He homered again on Sunday afternoon against the Rangers, marking the fourth consecutive game in which he has gone yard. The Rangers will be happy to leave Anaheim, as Trout homered five times (including a grand slam) in the four game series, resulting in three Angel victories.

Trout’s blast on Sunday was a two-run shot in the sixth inning off of reliever Kyle Bird, pushing the Angels’ lead to 6-2. He finished 1-for-2 with three walks and the homer on the afternoon. Trout is now batting .393/.571/1.000 with five home runs, 12 RBI, and six runs scored on the season. It stands to reason Trout will get the Barry Bonds treatment with increasing frequency.

The record for consecutive games with a home run is eight, held by Ken Griffey Jr., Don Mattingly, and Dale Long. The Angels’ record is five, done by Bobby Bonds from August 2-7, 1977. This is Trout’s second four-game homer streak of his career, with the other occurring in 2017 between May 12-15.
