ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - All-Star center fielder Mike Trout had a three-run homer among his four hits for the fast-starting Los Angeles Angels in a 15-6 victory over the freefalling Texas Rangers on Thursday night.

The first four Angels batters in the game had hits and scored. It all got started when Kole Calhoun had a leadoff triple into the right-field corner, then trotted home on an errant relay throw that bounced into the seats.

Calhoun had four hits and scored four times while finishing a homer shy of a cycle. He had three hits in the first three innings for the Angels, who won for the seventh time in eight games.

The Rangers have lost five straight and 19 of 22. They have the worst winning percentage in the majors at .413 with their 38-54 record.

Hector Santiago (1-7) struck out eight in six innings. The left-hander allowed four runs and five hits.
