Mike Trout leaves Angels game with tightness in right hamstring.

Mike TroutMike Trout was removed in the fifth inning of the Angels’ game against the Houston Astros on Sunday with tightness in his right hamstring.

Update: “It’s all right. I’m just sore,” Trout told reporters after the game. “It’s not like it popped or anything. It was just a little grabbing, so it shouldn’t be too serious. … I’ll see how it is tomorrow. I came out just because I didn’t want it to get worse. It’s definitely frustrating when you can’t be out there. For me as a speed guy, I’ve got to take care of my legs.”

Trout has reached base safely in 40 consecutive games and is second in the American League in batting average at .333.

Trout was replaced in center field by right fielder Collin Cowgill. Kole Calhoun took over for Cowgill in right.
