Buck Showalter hasn't seen much of Mike Trout, given that the highly touted Angels outfielder has played only two games against the Baltimore Orioles this season. But Wednesday, after watching Trout match a career high with four hits, score three runs and soar well above the center-field wall to take a first-inning home run away from J.J. Hardy, the Baltimore manager had seen enough to be impressed.

"There's nothing not to like about Trout," he said. "He's a very physical baseball player. You see him and you go, 'Good God.' I don't think effort's ever going to go into a slump."
