Trout HR 7th game in a row; Guardians beat Angels, pad lead
CLEVELAND — (AP) — Angels star Mike Trout homered in his seventh consecutive game, one shy of the major league record, but the AL Central-leading Cleveland Guardians beat Los Angeles 5-4 on Monday night. Trout can match the mark on Tuesday night when the Angels continue their series with the Guardians. Trout is the first AL player with a seven-game home run streak since Kendrys Morales of Toronto in 2018. Things got heated in the seventh when Francona argued that Andrés Giménez was hit by a pitch from Ryan Tepera. The Guardians took a 4-0 lead in the second off Reid Detmers, highlighted by Austin Hedges’ two-run double.wftv.com
