"First couple of at-bats, he was pitching me in and I was changing my approach, which I shouldn't have," Trout, of Millville, N.J., said of his strikeout and groundout. "I just tried to stay up the middle, and I got a pitch to hit."
Nicasio also gave up solo homers to Howie Kendrick and Matt Long in 4 1-3 innings. Albert Pujols went 2 for 4.
Carlos Gonzalez wrapped a two-run homer around the right-field foul pole off Weaver in the first.
