MLB in the American League recap on May 17, 2021: Mike Trout leaves the game


Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout left Monday’s game after the first inning against the Cleveland Indians.

The Angels still won the game 7-4.

Trout suffers from a strained right calf.

The outfielder was limping after running for the third pad.

He’s batting .333 but has been 1 for 17 in his last six games.

Juan Lagares took his place in center field after the departure of Trout while Jose Rojas embarked on the pitch on the left.

Elsewhere, Shohei Ohtani hit his 13th home run of the season, a major in the Majors. He sent Sam Hentges’ rapid deep in a five-run second inning that put the Angels ahead 6-1.

Rangers end their famine

The Texas Rangers ended their six-game losing streak by beating the New York Yankees 5-2.

Adolis Garcia and Willie Calhoun each hit a home run to help the team succeed.

Gerrit Cole (5-2) was trying to become the first American pitcher to earn six wins this season, without success.

Instead, he allowed seven hits and five runs, all-time high for him this season. He was pulled out of the game after Garcia hit a single to start the sixth inning. It was the right-hander’s 89th throw.

Jordan Lyles (2-3) put out six batters in six innings for his first win in eight starts, since his debut on April 4.

The Rangers had just enjoyed a first trip of at least six games without a win since 1991. Their last win was on May 9, at home, against Seattle.
