MLB home runs leader Mike Trout visits Coors Field as Rockies search for pitching consistency

Mike Trout led the MLB with 16 home runs before taking his powerful bat to Coors Field this week.

Earlier this month, 29-year-old Trout became the fastest player in league history to eclipse 300 home runs and 200 stolen bases.

Friday marked Trout’s eighth career game at Coors Field, where he carried a .483 batting average with 14 hits (one double and three homers) over 34 plate appearances entering the weekend.

Rockies manager Bud Black spent time working in the Angels’ front office in 2016 and described Trout as an “all-around talent.”

Rockies infielder Ryan McMahon, who missed Wednesday’s game with scheduled rest, was back in Colorado’s lineup Friday night.

Freeland’s lone career start against the Angels, in August 2018, was a 3-2 road win with one earned run allowed and six strikeouts.
