NEW YORK (AP) Saturday night, center stage, under the Yankee Stadium spotlight. And the best player in baseball put on quite a show.

Mike Trout homered and doubled three times during his first five-hit game in the majors as the Los Angeles Angels quickly recovered from a rocky start in rolling to an 11-4 victory over the New York Yankees.

"It's awesome. Preparation, working on timing, and nice payoff tonight," Trout said. "I was just getting pitches where I like it and I wasn't missing."
