TEMPE, Ariz. -- Mike Trout went 3-for-3 and made an impressive first-inning catch, leading the Los Angeles Angels to an 8-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Thursday.
The star center fielder stretched and sprawled to rob Billy Burns on the first play of the game. Trout added two singles and a double in the first four innings of the Angels' spring training home opener at Tempe Diablo Stadium.
Kole Calhoun also had three hits and scored two runs for the Angels.
Garrett Richards yielded two runs and two hits over two innings. Angels relievers combined for seven scoreless innings of six-hit ball.
Andrew Lambo had an RBI single among his two hits for Oakland.
Los Angeles scored twice off A's reliever Ryan Doolittle, the younger brother of Oakland closer Sean Doolittle.
