Stanton's long homer helps Marlins beat Angels 8-5

Mike Trout left the game after spraining his left thumb.

Los Angeles Angels' Mike Trout grimaces after stealing second during the fifth inning of an interleague baseball game against the Miami Marlins, Sunday, May 28, 2017, in Miami.

"It was a scary thing", Trout said. The bad news is the Angels aren't sure just how much time Trout would miss before the five-time All-Star and two-time MVP is able to return. So far, at least, he's having one of the best seasons we've ever seen.

As of Monday evening, the Angels have not publicly revealed the MRI results, but a locker had been set up for Eric Young Jr.in the clubhouse, which could indicate Trout is headed for the disabled list.

"He felt it a little bit, but not almost as bad as he did Friday", Scioscia said.

"It's always the same", Stanton said of Trout's approach. Following a walk to Kole Calhoun, Martin Maldonado gave the Angels a 2-1 lead with a long two-run homer to left.

The Marlins won a series for the first time since April 23.

"The play speaks for itself", Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. "We haven't even had many chances".

If Mike Trout had positioned himself in the hedge behind the wall, he still couldn't have caught Giancarlo Stanton's first-inning drive.
