Trout HR 6th game in row; Ohtani blister, Angels top Astros

Royals beat slumping Astros 6-5

HOUSTON (AP) — Mike Trout homered in his sixth straight game to set an Angels franchise record, Shohei Ohtani threw five solid innings before exiting because of a blister and Los Angeles beat the Houston Astros 6-1. Trout hit his 34th homer, a three-run drive in the second inning.

The three-time AL MVP broke the club mark of five games in a row with a homer set by Bobby Bonds in 1977.

Ken Griffey Jr., Don Mattingly and Dale Long share the major league record of eight games in a row with a home run. Ohtani improved to 12-8. He yielded one run and struck out seven until leaving with a blister on his right index finger while warming up in the sixth.
