Streelman was 1 over for the day

BALTIMORE — Even if 19-year-old Mike Trout hits hundreds of home runs during his big league career, he will never forget the first. Mix Diskerud Jersey . Everything went right for Trout on Sunday, whose three-run drive in the eighth inning help secure a 9-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. With family and friends in attendance, Trout hit a 3-1 pitch from Mark Worrell into the left field seats to turn a 3-2 lead into a four-run cushion. He got the silent treatment upon returning to the dugout before being mobbed by his teammates. “It was just awesome out there,” said Trout, the youngest player in the majors. “Its definitely special. I think its my parents first home run theyve seen in pro ball that I hit in a game.” To make the afternoon even more perfect, the fan who caught the ball gave it to Trout after the game. “Took a picture with the guy, gave him an autographed ball,” said Trout, who gave the souvenir to his contingent before talking with reporters. Trout came to the plate with a .162 batting average and only two RBIs, but his potential is limitless. “Mike has been doing something every game,” manager Mike Scioscia said. “You have keep pinching yourself and telling yourself hes 19.” Torii Hunter followed with a two-run shot against Worrell in the eighth, but the veteran preferred to talk about Trouts blast. “Mike Trout, Im glad he got the first one out of the way,” Hunter said. “Hes a good kid. We love him in here.” Rookie Tyler Chatwood (6-6) allowed two runs and six hits over seven innings for the Angels, who took two of three from Baltimore to improve to 10-1 in their last 11 series. Chatwood didnt issue a walk for the first time in his career. “It felt good today. I tried to attack the zone a little more and not nitpick on the corners,” he said. “Its something weve been working on a while.” Jeremy Guthrie (4-14) took the loss despite yielding only two runs over seven innings. He leads the majors in defeats despite owning a decent 4.33 earned-run average. Still, the hard-luck pitcher is rumoured to be sought after by several contenders before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. Thus, he was asked if he considered the possibility that this was his final start for Baltimore at Camden Yards. “I dont think so, but if it were, I guess it was kind of a perfect microcosm of my career in Baltimore if it did happen to be that,” he said, tersely. Guthrie came into the game with the seventh-worst run support in the AL (3.38 runs per game), and the Orioles didnt even match that against the Angels. Certainly, he should have a better record, but thats pretty much how it was the past three seasons, when he finished 10-12, 10-17 and 11-14. Pitching in 99 degree heat and toward what Orioles manager Buck Showalter described as a “challenging strike zone,” Guthrie did his part for the last-place Orioles. “I thought he held up real well and gave us a chance to win. Impressive,” Showalter said. “Its tough to pitch seven innings under all those conditions, and he gave us a good chance to win.” Nick Markakis homered and had three hits for the Orioles, and Adam Jones hit his 18th of the season and second in two games. Jones has five homers and 11 RBIs in his last nine games, and is one short of matching his career single-season high for home runs The loss ruined Baltimores bid to secure its first series win since June 24-26 against Cincinnati. The Orioles are 0-6-1 since then. Baltimore hit into two double plays, making it six over two games. Although they totalled 20 hits on Saturday and Sunday, the Orioles scored only six runs and finished with seven in the series. Los Angeles went up 1-0 in the third. With two outs, Hunter broke a 2-for-31 skid with a double and Bobby Abreu grounded an RBI single into right field. Taking advantage of two walks, the Angels upped their lead to 3-0 in the fourth. A leadoff walk, a double by Howie Kendrick and a sacrifice fly by rookie Mark Trumbo produced a run, and after Guthrie walked No. 9 hitter Bobby Wilson, Maicer Izturis hit an RBI double off the glove of first baseman Derrek Lee. Baltimore closed to 3-2 in the sixth. After Markakis singled with two outs, Jones hit a 2-0 pitch an estimated 446 feet over the centre field wall. It was the first home run allowed by Chatwood in seven starts since June 6. Following the Angels big eighth inning, Trumbo added an RBI single in the ninth. Markakis connected in the bottom half off Bobby Cassevah. NOTES: Markakis entered the game in a 1-for-16 funk. … The crowd of 15,676 was the Orioles lowest at home on a Sunday this season. … L.A.s Alberto Callaspo had three hits, matching his season high.

Streelman birdied the last seven holes to win the Travelers Championship by a stroke, shooting his second straight 6-under 64 to finish at 15-under 265. “Its probably my favourite nine holes on the PGA Tour,” Streelman said. “But you cant plan for something like that to happen. It just kind of falls into place.” He broke the tour record for consecutive closing birdies by a winner of six set by Mike Souchak in the 1956 St. Paul Open. He matched the tournament record with a 7-under 28 on the final nine. “I had 10 one-putts in a row,” Streelman said. “Thats something Ive definitely never done before.” Also the Tampa Bay Championship winner last season, the 35-year-old Streelman missed the cuts in his previous four starts on tour. “I didnt have too many expectations coming here,” said Streelman, who earned $1.12 million for the victory. Sergio Garcia and K.J. Choi tied for second. They each shot 67. Aaron Baddeley was fourth at 13 under after a 69. Streelman was 1 over for the day before starting the birdie run on No. 12. The streak reached five with a 37-foot putt at No. 16, and he capped it by hitting a wedge to 9 feet and rolling in another putt at No. 18. “I knew when that putt fell on 16 that something kind of special was happening,” Streelman said. Streelman said he hasnt focus on golf exclusively lately, trying to spend more time with wife Courtney and 6-month-old daughter Sophie. Geoff Cameron USA Jersey. “I was thinking about her (Sophie) on those last couple of putts. I was thinking, You know what? If these go in, great. If not, great. Shes going to love me either way and we have a nice family vacation coming up either way,” Streelman said. Streelman said a 10-foot putt for birdie on No. 9 gave him a boost of confidence that he could finish with a flourish. Garcia has six top-10 finishes in 10 PGA Tour starts this season, and won the European Tours Qatar Masters in January. “At the end of the day he played really, really well,” Garcia said about Streelman. “I feel like I played quite nicely and it just wasnt my time.” For the sixth straight year at the Travelers the player who held the 54-hole lead was unable to win. Ryan Moore was one stroke ahead after three rounds, but closed with a 71 to tie for fifth at 12 under. Second-round leader Scott Langley birdied his first three holes and briefly pulled into the lead at 14 under. He, too, finished with a 71 to tie for 11th at 10 under. Miguel Angel Carballo became the second player to make three eagles in a round on the PGA Tour this season as part of a 63 early Saturday. He finished at 9 under.
