(LOS ANGELES) – Andrelton Simmons homered and made more than one spectacular defensive play. Eric Young Jr., also homered and made a phenomenal play with his glove as well, as the Los Angeles Angels beat the Detroit Tigers 6-2 Monday night. Simmons hit a two-run homer and dazzled in the field while Young his his first homer of the season, drove in two runs and made a diving catch in deep center field to end the eighth inning for the Angels, who won for just the second time in eight games. Mike Trout missed his fifth consecutive game with a sore right wrist for the Angels. Not everything went well for the Angels in the opener of a six-game homestand: Nick Tropeano (5-6) pitched five innings of one-hit ball and retired 12 of his final 13 batters before heading to the clubhouse after just 62 pitches with shoulder tightness. The right-hander has struggled with shoulder problems for most of this season after missing the 2017 campaign for Tommy John surgery, including a 31-game stint on the disabled list that ended July 21. Nicholas Castellanos hit a first-inning homer, but the Tigers managed just three hits as their offensive slump continued. Detroit has scored just three runs over 39 innings while losing the first four games of its California road trip. Matthew Boyd (6-10) pitched six-hit ball into the sixth inning, but took his sixth loss in nine starts overall.
