Beckham Aaron Trout is a pretty sweet name. Congratulations to Mike and Jessica.
Trout, who turns 29 on August 7, is off to a strong start to this delayed MLB season. Through six games, he’s hitting .292 with a home run, four RBI and three runs scored.
Unfortunately, the Angels have lost three in a row and are 2-6 on the young season. They sit in dead last in the AL West heading into tonight’s game against the Houston Astros.
