Trout's homer helps Angels beat Red Sox in 9th
The Los Angeles Angels' Mike Trout tosses his bat after hitting a game-winning solo home run in the ninth inning against the Boston Red Sox on Friday in Anaheim, Calif. The Angels won 1-0.

Mike Trout returned from his second straight All-Star MVP performance with a walkoff home run with two outs in the ninth Friday night, lifting the Los Angeles Angels to a 1-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox after they were no-hit through six innings by Wade Miley.

Trout, who led off Tuesday’s All-Star Game with a home run against major league ERA leader Zack Greinke, drove an 0-1 pitch from Red Sox closer Koji Uehara (2-4) way over the fence in left-center for his American League-leading 27th homer.

The win went to Joe Smith (2-1), who pitched a perfect ninth.

Miley retired his first 16 batters before walking Chris Iannetta with one out in the sixth. Kole Calhoun broke up the no-hit bit in the seventh with a leadoff double over the head of center fielder Mookie Betts.
