ST. PETERSBURG (AP) — Mike Trout hit RBI double to key a five-run first inning and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-5 Sunday in a game delayed by a power outage at Tropicana Field.
There was a 19-minute wait during the third inning after lightning struck a nearby power substation, causing some of the stadium lights to go out.
Trout had three hits, walked and stole a base. The Angels took two of three and handed the Rays their first series loss since early July.
Trout and the Angels took a quick lead against Jake Odorizzi (7-9).
Angels starter Jered Weaver (12-6) gave up six hits and four walks, but only two runs in six innings. He is 4-0 lifetime at Tropicana Field.
Huston Street pitched the ninth for his sixth save with the Angels
