TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Angels suffered another injury scare on Sunday, as star center fielder Mike Trout was hit on the helmet by a pitch from reliever Erik Goeddel in the sixth inning of a 4-3 win over the Rangers at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

Trout seemed to be OK, immediately putting his helmet back on and jogging to first base before being lifted for a pinch-runner. The Angels did not call for a trainer to examine him before he left the game.
