Notes: Trout went 1-for-5 Wednesday night. He has the most runs scored (35) in the majors since May 1. He also has the most times on base in the American League since April 28 with 76. Trout would rank second in the American League in batting average if he had enough at-bats to qualify, according to the Angels’ website. He likely is to be eligible to be among the league leaders in the next two weeks.
Quotes: “He plays under extreme control,” the Dodgers' Tony Gwynn Jr. told the Orange County Register on Wednesday. “Whereas (the Nationals') Bryce (Harper) looks like he’s exerting full effort, Trout doesn’t.”
