The vast majority of this game was a pitchers’ duel between Matt Shoemaker and Ubaldo Jimenez, a 1-0 game into the seventh inning before the Angels offense came alive. They plated two runs in the seventh to take the lead, then Trout added a solo home run in the eighth inning against reliever Darren O’Day, a shot down the right field line.
