Rays can't capitalize, lose to Angels, 5-3

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Mike Trout and Josh Hamilton homered to help the Los Angeles Angels beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 on Friday night.

Trout hit his 25th homer of the season, a two-run shot off Jeremy Hellickson (0-1) during a three-run first that put the Angels up 3-0.

Los Angeles went ahead 4-1 on Hamilton's solo homer in the third. The slugger was hit by Jeff Beliveau's pitch in the seventh inning and later left with a bruised left middle finger.

After Tampa Bay loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth against Huston Street, the closer got his fifth save since being acquired from San Diego on July 18 by striking out Desmond Jennings and Ben Zobrist, and getting Matt Joyce on a pop fly. Zobrist had a potential extra-base hit go foul down the right field line.
