Mike Trout hit his major league-leading 16th homer, and the Los Angeles Angels reached the .500 mark for the 12th time this season by beating Miami 5-2 Saturday.
Trout’s first-inning homer into the beer garden in left field was estimated at 443 feet, which pleased a fair portion of the crowd at Marlins Park.
“Hate Fish Love Trout,” read a sign held by an Angels fans.
J.C. Ramirez (5-3) limited Miami to an unearned run in seven innings and benefited from excellent defense. Bud Norris, who tweaked his right knee and left Friday’s game after throwing only three pitches, gave up a homer to Marcell Ozuna in the ninth.
Cameron Maybin put the Angels ahead to stay in the third when he tripled and scored on Andrelton Simmons’ groundout. Maybin also singled, stole two bases and scored three times. Simmons had an RBI double and was robbed of a homer by left fielder Ozuna.
