Mike Trout may have been wearing the road grays of the Angels on Tuesday at Oriole Park, but he definitely had a home-field advantage.

Trout grew up in Millville, N.J., and with this week's two-game series marking the Angels' only visit to Baltimore this season, more than 1,000 of the town's residents made the two-hour drive down Interstate 95 to see him play.

"They've been there since day one," said Trout, who received a loud ovation when the starting lineups were announced. "They were going to my high school games and stuff. It will be good to see their faces again."
