Notes: The headline on the Angels’ website for its story about Friday night’s win over the Mariners was “Morales hits, Haren pitches ... and Trout is Trout.” ... Trout stole his 42nd base Friday. ... He scored three times Friday, giving him 106 for the season. The Angels reported that he has scored three or more runs 10 times this season, the most in the major leagues since Sammy Sosa did it 11 times in 2001. ... The Angels noted that Trout not only leads the majors in runs scored but that he began Saturday with 15 more than second-place Ian Kinsler of Texas.

Quotes: Teammate Torii Hunter said, “Speed kills. ... That’s what we love about Trout. That speed he has is unbelievable. You can’t teach it. He was born with it. That’s a blessing.”

Seattle manager Eric Wedge, in a story by Alden Gonzalez on the Angels’ website: “He’s an impact player. What he does at home plate, what he does in center field and what he does on the basepaths, it’s game-changing and you saw that again (Friday night).”
