Notes: Trout’s homer Tuesday night on his 21st birthday made him the youngest player in major-league history to have at least 20 homers and 20 stolen bases in a season. ... He’s one of three Angels ever to have 20 homers and 30 steals, joining Bobby Bonds (1977) and Devon White (1987). ... He joined Ted Williams (1939), Frank Robinson (1956), Alex Rodriguez (1996) and Jason Heyward (2010) as the only major-leaguers ever to homer on their 21st birthdays.
Quotes: “We lost, so it doesn’t mean a whole lot,” Trout said of his 20th homer Tuesday. “When I look back at the end of the season, that stuff will pop up, but right now it means nothing.”
