Angels' 15-4 romp hands Rangers 1st home loss

Angels rookie first baseman Mark Trumbo
homered and drove in four runs to back a solid outing by fill-in
starter Matt Palmer as Los Angeles broke out for a 15-4 victory
over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.
It was the first home loss for the defending American League
champions.
Trumbo, playing his 24th career game since his call-up last
September, had three hits. Maicer Izturis and Peter Bourjos also
homered among his four hits for the Angels, who have won 10 of
their last 13 games.
Palmer (1-0), in his second start for injured Scott Kazmir,
limited Texas to one run and three hits over six innings. The
right-hander struck out three and walked one.
Colby Lewis (1-2) took the loss.
