ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout was everywhere Friday.

He chased down a long, two-out drive to center by Elvis Andrus in the top of the seventh to end a scoring threat. He hit an RBI triple to get an otherwise dormant Angels offense on Friday going, leading to a two-run sixth to tie the game.

And he delivered the winning hit with a two-out, bases-loaded single in the seventh to score Howie Kendrick and Erick Aybar with the eventual winning runs. Trout ended up 2-for-4 with three RBIs and extended his team-high hitting streak to six games. He has 12 multi-hit games since May 3, including three of the last six.

His play impressed the opposing skipper.

"He's a good player, a real good player," Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "He's got speed, a little pop in that bat, makes contact. He's an exciting-looking little player."
