Trout Homers in Six (Update: 7) Straight Games

Mike Trout homered in the second inning of tonight’s game between the Angels and Astros. It’s the sixth straight game he has gone yard. That’s a new Angels team record. Last year Joey Votto hit home runs in 7 straight games for the Reds—that’s a tie for the second most all time with Jim Thome, Barry Bonds, Kevin Mench, and Kendrys Morales. The all time record is 8, by Ken Griffey Jr, Don Mattingly, and Dale Long.

It’s going to be another no-playoffs season for the Angels, but it’s once again not Trout’s fault. He has 34 home runs in 99 games.

Update: Last night he homered in the 5th against the Cleveland Baseball Team. That temporarily tied the score, but the Guardians ultimately prevailed. It sometimes seems like he and Shohei Ohtani are the only productive players the Angels have.

It was Trout’s seventh straight game with a home run (he was rested on Sunday), moving him into a tie for second longest streak ever, as described above.
