Mike Trout hits milestones in Angels' 8-1 win over Astros

BY foxsports • October 2, 2016

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Mike Trout stole his 30th base and drove in his 100th run, and the Los Angeles Angels completed their worst season of the 21st century with an 8-1 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday.

Jhoulys Chacin pitched seven scoreless innings of four-hit ball for the Angels (74-88), who won nine of their final 11 games while finishing just their third losing season in 13 years.

Trout wrapped up another MVP-caliber campaign stuck on 29 homers, but he got his milestone stolen base in the first inning and an RBI single in the sixth before leaving to a standing ovation.

Despite finishing just two games off the record of last season's playoff team, the Astros (84-78) missed the postseason for the 10th time in 11 years.
