Trout’s HR not enough; Edison romps

Mike Trout continued to shine but the Los Angeles Angels continued to stagger as they lost 7-2 to the Chicago White Sox Friday night despite the all-star centerfielder’s 41st home run of the season.

Trout hit his major league-leading blast in the bottom of the fifth in Anaheim, and made two spectacular fielding plays, but it wasn’t nearly enough as the Halos’ record fell to 60-64 and missed a chance to pull into a tie with the Texas Rangers for third place in the American League West.

As a team, the Angels mustered six hits, two each by Albert Pujols and David Fletcher. The Orange County team trailed 3-2 until the visitors (55-66) opened the game up with four runs in the eight inning.

Ty Buttrey was the victim there, giving up two hits  –including a grand slam home run by James McCann – in two-thirds of an inning.

On Saturday, the Angels will again face the White Sox in a 1:07 p.m. game at the Big A.

Chargers have a great vacation in Hawaii

Edison High’s football team had a festive opener Saturday with a 52-0 romp over Baldwin High of Wailuku in Hawaii.

The Chargers led 21-0 in the first quarter and 42-0 at the half. Mike Waters rushed for two touchdowns and Jacob Hanlon threw for two scores in the intersectional contest.

EHS, 5-6 last year, will be in action again next on Aug. 29 visiting Carson (0-0) High.
