Trout sprains thumb steal­ing sec­ond base

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

MI­AMI – Mike Trout sprained his left thumb steal­ing sec­ond base Sun­day, and the Los An­ge­les An­gels took a thump­ing with­out him, los­ing 9-2 to the Mi­ami Mar­lins. Trout yelled in pain as he rose after slid­ing head­first in the fifth in­ning.

He was ex­am­ined by a trainer, stayed in the game, but was re­placed in the sixth. X-rays were neg­a­tive, and there was no im­me­di­ate timetable re­gard­ing his re­turn.

The reign­ing Amer­i­can League MVP was 0-for-2 when he de­parted with the An­gels trail­ing 4-2. He fin­ished 2-for-9 in the se­ries to drop his av­er­age to .337.
