ARLINGTON, Texas — Mike Trout carried the Angels to another victory.

Trout blasted a pair of homers, including a three-run shot, to lift the Angels to a 6-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night, their second straight victory since returning from the loss of Tyler Skaggs.

Trout’s four RBIs provided the difference in the game, and all the cushion the Angels would need on a night that Jaime Barría returned to the rotation.

Barría, who took Skaggs’ roster spot, gave up one run in five innings.

In his previous outing last week, Barría allowed one run in five innings. On Wednesday Barria struck out eight, a career high, and he walked two, coming on the heels of a game in which he’d struck out six and walked none.

Including a five-inning, one-run game in early June, Barría has 2.40 ERA over his past three starts, which has lowered his ERA for the season from 8.16 to 5.22.

Barría was pulled after 87 pitches on Tuesday, leaving four innings for the bullpen with a four-run lead.

The Angels had built most of that lead in the third inning, starting with Matt Thaiss lashing a double to left-center in his first major league at-bat.

Thaiss went to third on a Dustin Garneau single and scored on Kole Calhoun’s single.

Trout then drilled a ball out to right-center, knocking a three-run homer into the Rangers bullpen. In the sixth, after the Rangers had cut the lead to 4-2, he yanked a homer just inside the left field pole.

It was Trout’s 17th multi-homer game, coming just two weeks after his previous one. Trout also has eight homers this season against the Rangers, equaling the franchise record for homers in a single season against Texas. –

The only negative on the night for the Angels was that Upton came out of the game in the sixth with left quad tightness. There was no immediate word on the severity or whether he’d miss any time.
