Trout, Hamilton rally Angels past White Sox

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Mike Trout hit a game-tying grand slam in the bottom of the eighth, Josh Hamilton had three hits and scored the go-ahead run, and the Los Angeles Angels erased five-run deficit to beat the Chicago White Sox 6-5 Saturday night.

Chicago starter Chris Sale took a three-hit shutout into the eighth and the White Sox held a commanding 5-0 lead.

Erick Aybar led off the eighth with a double and scored on Chris Iannetta's single, and after an error and another single loaded the bases, Trout hit a full-count changeup over the left-center field fence to tie it. Aybar stroked a two-out RBI single later in the inning, and Ernesto Frieri closed it out for the Angels.

The grand slam was Trout's only hit of the game. He has a hit in 14 of his last 15 games and has reached base in 26 of his last 27.
