ANAHEIM (AP) — Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout became the team’s career home run leader when he hit No. 300 Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader against Houston. Trout broke a tie with Tim Salmon for the franchise record. Trout had matched Salmon with a homer Friday night, and has connected five times in eight games. Trout’s major league-leading 15th homer came in the third inning, a two-run drive off Brandon Bielak. The three-time AL MVP, who won the award last year, is in his 10th season. The 29-year-old Trout is the 16th player to reach the 300-homer mark before turning 30 and the 11th fastest by age to do it.
