He is also the first player with four hits, a home run and a win in his first six games since Boston’s Wes Ferrell in 1937, and the first rookie with at least three hits and a win in his first six games since Dutch Stryker of the 1924 Boston Braves.
Trout, Justin Upton and Luis Valbuena also homered for the Angels. Rene Rivera had four RBI, including a two-run shot in the eighth.
