ANAHEIM, Calif. — Mike Trout provided the Los Angeles Angels with the perfect beginning and the perfect ending to another impressive victory over one of the teams they are battling for a wild-card berth.

Trout hit a leadoff homer in the first inning off reigning AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander — and robbed Prince Fielder of a home run to center field for the final out in C.J. Wilson’s 6-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night.

And for good measure, he also took over the AL batting race by a point over Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera, who was ejected in the fourth inning for arguing balls and strikes. This should be an interesting race down the stretch — not just for playoff berths, but for the AL MVP as well.
