ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Mike Trout was scratched from the Los Angeles Angels’ lineup Saturday and is day to day with tightness in his left hamstring.

Trout was pulled shortly before first pitch as a precaution after going through warmups for a game against the Houston Astros.

Cameron Maybin took Trout’s place in center field, and Ben Revere stepped in for Maybin in left field.

Trout extended his hitting streak to a career-high 17 games in the Angels’ 7-6 extra-innings loss to the Astros on Friday night.

Trout was named AL player of the month for the fourth time in his career after hitting .364 with 18 extra-base hits and 18 RBIs in April.
