Angels' Trout sets rookie homer, steals mark

Mike Trout becomes first rookie with 30 HRs, 40 steals in a season.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Angels center fielder Mike Trout has become the first major league rookie ever with 30 home runs and 40 stolen bases.


Trout hit his 30th homer Sunday, a two-out solo shot in the seventh inning at Texas off Yu Darvish.


The 21-year-old Trout had a leadoff walk to start the game, then quickly got his 48th stolen base.


Only two players in the majors have ever had 30 homers and 50 stolen bases -- Eric Davis in 1987 and Barry Bonds in 1990.


The Angels have four games left in the regular season, including the second game of Sunday's day-night doubleheader against the AL West-leading Rangers.
